Description

This is Bly's truly disturbing account (and expose) of a mental asylum to which Bly was committed after feigning insanity. Including graphic depictions as to the treatment of mental patients and their unsanitary surroundings, Bly's controversial 1887 expose reveals the scandal and brutality of mental health in the nineteenth century and the ease with which professionals were prepared to accept and treat mental "disorders."
