Demonic to Divine: The Double Life of Shulamis Yelin is a weaving of the Montreal writer’s stories, selected diary excerpts and family photographs that reveal a far-reaching creative personality who was haunted from the age of ten by the "moods taking over."

This book poignantly illuminates the dramatic duality of a public and private literary and emotional life through her published and unpublished stories of an idyllic Montreal Jewish immigrant childhood contrasted with deeply troubled and often shocking diary entries that document the author’s lifelong battle with mental illness.

Yelin’s insightful yet light and humorous stories have been cherished by generations of children and adults for their universal appeal. The journal entries that she maintained for most of her 90 years document the abuse, paranoia, self-loathing, doubt and devastating depression of Yelin’s true emotional state. These concurrent lenses reveal the profound struggles and suffering of a fascinating and highly gifted woman who transcended her ongoing deep-seated emotional agony to create a significant literary legacy.

The many threads of this multi-layered book have been woven together through the collaboration of Yelin’s daughter Gilah Yelin Hirsch, and Yelin's first stories' editor, Nancy Marrelli.
Fraught with rage and admiration and bewilderment, a daughter reaches through the pages of time to heroically attempt to fathom her mother.

Michele Zackheim, author of Last Train to Paris and Broken Colors

The known presence and increased prevalence of major mood disorders in highly creative individuals is reinforced by this saga.
