Beschreibung

| Dust Wrapper over Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 8¾" x 5½". 220pp. | First Edition (First Printing).Introduction by Bettina Sofia Viviano. Welcome to the Bizarre World of OCD, Where Once More is Never Enough. From the foreword: "For those of us who take the simple things in life for granted – being able to flush a toilet once and carry on with our day, being able to eat without the paranoia that some germ in our food will kill us, washing our hands once and not thinking about it again - James Michael Bailey's book Man, Interrupted is a glance into what could happen if we suddenly got it all wrong and then, as part of our treatment, found ourselves having to confront all of the things that terrify us. With wit and humour, Bailey takes us into a world of insanity, rising to the occasion to heal himself, and along the way makes some very colourful friends."

The book is in stock and ships from the rustic nirvana of Peasedown St. John, near Bath, England from a long-established bookseller - guaranteed by my reputation and the UK Distance Selling Act.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

"Man, Interrupted" is the true story of one man's experiences as a sufferer of severe obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Jim Bailey's obsessions centred around drugs and his fear of coming into contact with them, through people spiking his food, by accidentally touching a junkie, or even just touching a photograph of an marijuana leaf. After a period of trying desperately to cope with his illness, he was admitted to one of America's leading psychiatric hospitals. The myriad methods of treatment there included trips to greet drug addicts and homeless people in an attempt to expose him to his fears and eradicate his anxiety. It is testimony to Bailey's indomitable spirit that he is now able to see the absurdity of many of the situations in which he found himself. "Man, Interrupted" gives a glimpse into the tortured world of a man suffering from what is an increasingly common disorder. But far from being a doom-laden account of mental illness, the result is uniquely revealing hilariously entertaining and wonderfully rewarding.

About the Author:

James Bailey was born in Arkansas City, Kansas and is an actor and writer. He was struck with a crippling form of OCD in the mid-'70s. Now recovered, he lives in Louisiana.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
