Ship of Fools : Stories From the Mental Health Front Line.

 Here are twenty stories told by an ex-professional that really lift the lid on psychiatry. Intense, exhilarating, these short tales reach down to the marrow. Mining a dark vein, the writing is wryly comic and clear-eyed.

These are vivid accounts of life and death, of betrayal and redemption. They are gems of compression primed to get to the core. They explore the mental health system and also morph into an enquiry into the nature of existence itself. The reader is held by an uncompromising confessional voice.

By turns, hallucinatory, funny and plangent, these stories offer a unique glimpse into a secretive domain. Let the writer be your guide to this Underworld. Be careful of what you might find there...
