Maybe you think your family is messed up, but you've got nothing on Mariel Hemingway, who lives with a legacy of suicide, mental illness and even, in one particularly dispiriting example, sexual abuse. The title, "Running From Crazy," refers to what she feels she has been doing all her life - running from the family weaknesses, trying to be healthy and trying to help people suffering from suicidal depression.
"I didn't feel like I was crazy, but I felt like I lived in crazy. You know, in the land of crazy," she says. RELATED Conrad Murray released from jail, considers penning book, starring in reality show
Hemingway and her life-partner, Bobby Williams, will hold a book signing for the couple's Running With Nature, from 4 to 5 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Greentopia EcoFest at High Falls. The book shares the couple's philosophy on good nutrition, meditation and more.
I mentioned that reading the book was like a stream of reminders of so many of the healthier habits I already know, but allow myself to get distracted from engaging in. Other than the rock climbing, real running and seriously advanced yoga, I related to the book more than I thought I would. It is a refreshing reminder of the many ways we need to re-engage in what we know is our own healthy nature, and of course nature is the key.
The title comes from Hemingway's comment that she has spent her life "running from crazy," trying to escape what seemed a doomed legacy for herself and her two daughters, with whom she discusses the family history in the film.
"Some people are like, 'Wow, that's a heavy title.' Well, I don't see it as a heavy title. I'm like, 'Dude, thank God,'" Hemingway said. "Crazy's gone. Sometimes I'm running with crazy, but now it's a different kind of crazy. There's fun in my life and I'm joyful. But there was a time when I really was not. A time, my entire life, probably 40 years of really trying to not be something that I came from."

It's a coincidence, she says, that the book is coming out at the same time as a new documentary, Running from Crazy, about Hemingway's family's history of mental illness and suicide. In addition to her grandfather and Margaux, five other family members have killed themselves.
"You could say that not only have I been running from crazy, but since I was 16, I was always searching for something to bring balance to my life, bring health," she says. Hemingway says she spent much of her youth caring for her mother, who had cancer. As an adult, she spent many years caring for her husband, Stephen Crisman, when he battled cancer. They divorced in 2008.
Hemingway: Suicide is extremely complex. It is not necessarily somebody who suffers long-term mental illness. It can be planned for 20 years, or it can happen out of the blue. And we just need to talk more about it because there is a tremendous amount of shame around suicide. It was a long healing process for me, to understand how my own sister could commit suicide and knowing that I thought she was doing really well, and you'll see that in many situations. The reason I wrote these books is so that if Mariel Hemingway, who comes from this family that everybody (knows), if SHE talks about her story, maybe I get someone suffering somewhere in silence to find a safe space to tell their story. So that they can start to heal.
The gripping film, directed by two-time Oscar winner Barbara Kopple, shows how Hemingway, the mother of two grown daughters and the author of multiple healthy-living books (like "Mariel's Kitchen" and "Mariel Hemingway's Healthy Living from the Inside Out"), consciously tried to avoid her famous family's repercussions from mental illness. Her grandfather, legendary author Ernest Hemingway, her supermodel older sister Margaux Hemingway and a slew of other relatives committed suicide. And her only other sister, nicknamed "Muffet" (the eldest of the three), has lived in assisted care for many years due to manic depression.
