Awesome compilation of essays from 19th-century and mid-20th-century female patients of lunatic asylums. Even in their brevity, many of the pieces are written with such emotional candor that a vivid portrayal results. Read full review

User Review  - Julie - Goodreads

I had a hard time getting through this depressing book, so sat down and finished it in one long sitting. It's an important piece of women's history, and of general psychiatric history. Read full review
