Henry Kellerman’s There’s No Handle on My Door: Stories of Patients in Mental Hospitals Is Available as an Audiobook
by Evander Lomke on
Now available just in time for the 2017 holidays and New Year, this fascinating book probes institutional life via 9 unforgettable profiles. In the words of its author, Dr. Henry Kellerman:
“The unalloyed truth is that I’m in thrall to idiosyncrasy. It can be said that I actually love pathology. Let me explain: It’s that I love to be near it, to see it, to observe it with a clinical eye. I feel strongly sympathetic toward people who are severely and emotionally and psychologically ill. I see pathology as an expressionist and Cubist rendition of reality.”
You will not soon forget these stories or how Dr. Kellerman deals with the delusional, the unusual and strange, in a modern setting.
