Author(s): BISHOP Graham
From Mt Cook to the Cuckoo's nest, from physical and spiritual fulfilment of the highest mountains to the social degradation of a seclusion cell in a psychiatric hospital, from international acclaim to police brutality, the opposite poles of mania and depression. This book tells of the extraordinary determination in the life of a sensitive and gentle man. The story is told withn an innovative combination of poetry and prose, at times funny or sad, at others angry or despairing, but always engrossing. This book raises major issues about mental health care in New Zealand.
