      Oprah Pick! Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family. On Sunday, NPR did an author interview with writer Robert Kolker, the bestselling author of Lost Girls, on his new book Hidden Valley Road. The interview itself is wonderful, but the contents of the book are so relevant to right now.   One of my favorite books was The Three Christs of Ypsilanti. So, when I heard of Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker about a family with 12 children–six of whom had schizophrenia–I knew I had to read it. But this story is darker and sadder than I could have imagined. About Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker.
