Blurbs:
  • "Now comes a novel that reveals deep truths about mental illness...The author has achieved a rare and wonderful insight into the dark kingdom of the mind." Chicago Tribune
  • "Hannah Green has done a marvelous job of dramatizing the internal warfare in a young psychotic....With a courage that is sometimes breathtaking...she makes a faultless series of discriminations between the justifications for living in an evil and complex reality and the justifications for retreating into the security of madness...convincing and emotionally gripping." New York Times Book Review
  • " She creates vivid tableaux of life in a mental institution....Though the book deals with infinite sorrows and terrors, the total effect is heartening." New York Herald Tribune
