Book Synopsis
“First Person Crazy” is the autobiography by Robert Wood Darby, a lifelong human rights activist. Darby came of age as a privileged Caucasian in the segregated South during the civil rights era. America was also immersed in the Vietnam War. When Darby graduated from Emory University and enrolled at Harvard and Tufts, he found many who shared his dedication to the anti-war movement.
Few of Darby’s friends realized that he was also fighting a very personal war. The sensitive and gifted young man’s manic depression sometimes led to wild exuberance and other times to suicidal thoughts to end his own life.
Despite Darby’s challenges, he became man with empathy for downtrodden people. Darby’s life became one of service as a civil rights advocate, peace activist, and the founder of “Food Not Bombs” in Atlanta, Georgia. Darby is a masterful writer who makes the reader feel the excitement and frustration of his adventures, his passion for social justice, and his quest for normalcy.
