Description

Written with unsparing precision and astounding immediacy, Faces in the Water 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.show more
