Radical feminist Millett, who discontinued lithium medication despite affliction with manic depression, tracks her degenerative mental state, the discontent it fostered in the lesbian artists' colony at her Poughkeepsie, N.Y., farm, and the attempts of relatives and friends to institutionalize her. PW called this memoir ``prolix and digressive, fractured and brave.''
