Flying with Paper Wings PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Flying with Paper Wings free pdf Flying with Paper Wings is anything but a misery memoir. Glittering with black humour and without self-pity, it shifts other people's perceptions of mental distress beyond kindness, compassion, sympathy and fear into some deeper perception. The mentally unwell have not disappeared with the decommissioning of the ironically named ''asylums'', and as communities expand, stress and fracture at a speed we are not made to cope with, we will see more forms of mental illness. It is easy to look the other way, or to stuff the outstretched hand in the street with money as you take to your heels. Read this exceptional book. It takes you beyond your own narrow terror towards something that might be called insight.
