North for Sun

North for Sun is the book of Martha Marcelo, a Filipino-American woman with mental illness who can travel in time. Martha awaits an upcoming procedure that may affect her memory, and she decides to write a book for herself to read afterwards. She chooses the year she first recovered, when she returned to college, so she can remember how to get better. Martha chases people through the past and future, through generations of her countries, looking for somebody who will stick. North for Sun is a story about playing in time, how families filter memory and how the experience of mental illness distorts and loosens time. It asks how we want to remember ourselves, what we would keep if we had to start over. At its heart, North for Sun is the story of how a good person got better again.

Martha Marcelo tells her story of recovery on her own terms. She remembers the year after her first breakdown and multiple hospital stays. Martha has dropped out of school twice, and she returns to college with the dream of finishing freshman year the third time around. Her changing moods remake relationships with spirited aunt Tita May and younger cousin Heidi, an inventive scientist. In her travels through college and time, Martha struggles to know her later lifelong friends, including her roommate Tina and future husband Dan. As Martha discovers all sides of her emotions, her world becomes bigger and bigger. Each choice unfolds in unexpected ways until she finds her life’s work and people who stick. Honest throughout its despair, exuberance, and hilarity, Martha’s voice is always richly powerful.
