The Other Side of Life
In this book, Sheldon reveals that he was subject to frequent mood swings and often felt inappropriate emotions for his circumstances. At age 17, he seriously considered suicide.
Later, at 31, he observed that he felt suicidal on what should have been the happiest day of his life when he won an Academy Award for his screenplay for The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer. He sought psychiatric help and was diagnosed as manic depressive bipolar.

The Other Side of Life by Jess C. Scott
Namespaces Article Talk. Views Read Edit View history. We begin in Dublin with Gemma, an event organiser in her early 30s, whose father has just jumped ship for a younger woman, and whose mother is therefore a hysterical disaster zone. Anton, the love of Gemma's life, dumped her a couple of years ago and is shacked up with her ex-best friend, Lily. Gemma can't forgive Lily for this, though Lily is super-sweet and certainly didn't steal Anton.
Gemma passes the time by writing feel-good solutions to her life's sad story, and a friend thinks that her fantasies might be well worth pub- lishing Next, in London, there is Jojo, Lily's literary agent, a buxomly beautiful maker of mega-deals, mistress of witty one-liners and all-round fabulous person.
Stories of Life, Love and Separation on Both Sides of the Border
That's the first peculiarity in the book - I know Keyes has a soft heart, but never before have I come across a novel in which the author depicts a literary agent as upright, worthy and deserving of every penny. Jojo is in love with her boss, but she is also in love with her job; and there is a choice to be made Lastly, also in London, there is Lily, live-in lover of Anton, mother of their baby Ema, and writer of a surprise bestseller about a white witch who settles in a small village - cue ecstatic readership and snotty broadsheet reviews.
It is the character of Lily that I findmost strange. She is a self-centred drama queen masquerading as a sensitive flower, yet no one, least of all her creator, seems to see it.
Lily is incapable of functioning without Anton waiting on her hand and foot. While the poor man organises their house purchase single-handed, she claims not to understand the word "vendor".

She insists she is permanently racked with guilt over Gemma, but when there's a brief opportunity for Anton to assist Gemma's own literary career, she is not best pleased. In fact, she runs off to her mother and barely allows Anton access to their daughter.

Chapter after chapter, I remained convinced that Lily's true character must be rumbled in the end, and when her second book bombs and the bank repossesses her house I was mightily cheered and felt order had been restored. However, to my astonishment, she then writes another charming bestseller, the second book is shortlisted for the Orange prize and the devoted Anton, after much undeserved penance, is permitted to resume his role as chief cook and bottle-washer.
