Crazy Like a Fox:
Adventures in Schizophrenia

"Christi Furnas's debut graphic novel tackles a tough subject with humor and simplicity. Through sweet line drawings of animal friends, Furnas helps to alleviate the stigma of a schizophrenia diagnosis, reinforces the validity of being okay (or not), and illustrates the importance of continually 'working on it.'" --KARLA J. STRAND, Ms. Magazine


"A work of blunt brilliance. With disarming humor and irresistible charm, Fox Foxerson calls everything exactly what it is. I highly recommend this funny and loving book." -AMY KURZWEIL, author of Artificial: A Love Story


"Furnas skewers the mental healthcare system in her sharp-edged graphic novel debut, which interweaves candid autobiographical moments into the story of aspiring artist Fox Foxerson and a bevy of other anthropomorphic critters..."-PUBLISHERS WEEKLY


Crazy Like a Fox: Adventures in Schizophrenia, published by Street Noise Books

Fox Foxerson steps off the bus into a new city with the idea of becoming an artist. Fox finds friends, a date, and a job. It seems as easy a ABC. But some friends are not truly friendly, the date does not go well, and the job becomes soul-crushing. Under stress, Fox starts to unravel and reaches out for help.


But help brings new problems. The mental healthcare system is confusing and no one at the hospital seems to be listening. Fox just wants to make art. Given a diagnosis of schizophrenia, Fox needs time and space to figure things out. 


It’s a quirky, humorous graphic novel tinged with pathos, asking the question: are you okay? Fox isn’t but Fox is working on it.
