Sarah Vaughan is Not my Mother: A Memoir of Madness

Author(s): MaryJane Thomson

Biography & Memoir

In the tradition of The Bell Jar and Girl, Interrupted comes a stunning autobiographical account from a 29-year-old New Zealander. A creative, intelligent young woman with a loving family, in her first year of university MaryJane starts to experience nightmarish delusions and hallucinations. Her journey into madness has begun. She drops out, turns to drugs, and spends eight years in and out of psych wards, police cells, drug hangouts and on the streets. In this book she vividly describes what it is like to live with voices in your head, to lose your freedom, and to despair of ever being well again.
