The Hospital Always Wins

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Issa Ibrahim s memoir details in searing prose his development of severe mental illness leading to a horrific family tragedy, his acquittal by reason of insanity, and his subsequent commission to a mental hospital for nearly twenty years.
Raised in an idyllic creative environment, mom and dad cultivating his talent, Issa watches his family s descent into chaos in the drug-crazed late 1980s. Following his father s death, Issa, grief-stricken and vulnerable, travels down a road that leads to psychosis and to one of the most nightmarish scenarios conceivable.
Issa receives the insanity plea and is committed to an insane asylum with no release date. But that is only the beginning of his odyssey. Institutional and sexual sins cause further punishments, culminating in a heated legal battle for freedom.
Written with great verve and immediacy, "The Hospital Always Wins"paints a detailed picture of a broken mental health system but also reveals the power of art, when nurtured in a benign environment, to provide a resource for recovery. Ultimately this is a story about survival and atonement through creativity and courage against almost insurmountable odds."
