Description

The ground-breaking cult classic about a young woman's battle with schizophrenia
With a Foreword by Esmé Weijun Wang and an Afterword by the author

'She fought them with her head and her teeth while the restraints were being tied, trying, doglike, to bite herself'

Sent to a psychiatric hospital, she must, with the help of a gifted psychiatrist, try to find a way back. Joanne Greenberg's fictionalized autobiography became a global bestseller on publication in 1964, and remains a wrenching account of mental illness.
