Title
Demonic to Divine: The Double Life of Shulamis Yelin
Abstract
Montreal writer and teacher Shulamis Yelin (1913-2002), author of such books as "Shulamis: Stories from a Montreal Childhood" (1983) and "Seeded in Sinai" (1975), battled mental illness from childhood. Her insightful yet light and humorous stories belied the abuse, paranoia, self-loathing, doubt and devastating depression of her true emotional state. This book is a weaving of the writer's stories and selected diary excerpts and family photographs that reveal a far-reaching creative personality who is haunted from the age of ten by the "moods taking over".
