by Horatio Clare - £9.99  Vintage Publishing (2022)

"Deeply moving, darkly funny and hugely powerful"
(Robert Macfarlane)
"A brave, lit-up account of going mad and getting better"
(Jeanette Winterson)
After a lifetime of ups and downs, Horatio Clare was committed to hospital under Section 2 of the Mental Health Act. From hypomania in the Alps, to a complete breakdown and a locked ward in Wakefield, this is a gripping account of how the mind loses touch with reality, how we fall apart and how we may heal.
