Bipolar Authors and Characters

Was Jack Kerouac Bipolar?

What about Holden Caulfield?

I always wondered why Catcher in the Rye was my favorite book.

I’ll just tell you about this madman stuff that happened to me around last Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come out here and take it easy.

– Holden Caulfield, Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Sounds like many episodes I have had.
