A brutally honest look at what it means to be bipolar and bicultural, Love and Other Gods is a journey through the mind of one man as he learns to define himself.

Michael Nangla was the first of his family to be born in England and has always been torn between two cultures; that of his mother's homeland and that of the country he grew up in.

Finding freedom for the first time at university, Michael discovered an exciting world of love and lust. But when love turned to heartbreak one too many times, Michael's world shattered. Vivid hallucinations forced him down a road he had never been on before; through hospitalisation to cures from mystics.

His identity fractured, Michael kept trying to find himself, turning to family, friends and love for answers.

A brutally honest look at what it means to be bipolar and bicultural, Love and Other Gods is a journey through the mind of one man as he learns to define himself.
