Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written with unsparing precision and astounding immediacy, takes the reader behind the walls of two hospitals--Cliffhaven and Treecroft--and into the hearts and minds of its confused and tormented patients. The experience of insanity and "the utter, the naked precariousness of existence" is conveyed with extraordinary insight and poetic brilliance.

Synopsis:

'Miss Frame shows an insight into the minds and lives of other patients which brings them back into the scope of art. And her skill at penetrating the feelings of the staff unites patients and staff in such a way as to make them all, however whirling, members of the same tragic microcosm.' --The Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis:

Takes readers into the hearts and minds of confused and tormented hospital patients.
