Book Number: 0243498
Spectrum Publishers, Melbourne, 1984. Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 83 pages, authors photograph on rear panel. This book reveals the problems of schizophrenia from a Mother's perspective. It is a tale of bewilderment, of not knowing initially what the "sickness" is, what it means, or where it will all end. It is a tale where hopes rise in response to a treatment regime which produces a positive outcome, only to be dashed when the symptoms of schizophrenia appear again to deprive the young man of rational thought action. It is a tale of relentlessness -- the relentlessness of episodes of disorder company by relentless pursuit of a mother in search of the best professional care for her son. the surface of the paperback binding is very slightly rubbed causing a haziness to the image of the author on the rear panel.
