From the Back Cover:

“A stirring anthology of the best and most searing writings that brightly illuminate the dark side of so many women’s lives.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The wide range of work includes arresting first-person descriptions of mental illness.” —Library Journal

“A rich mosaic of historical, social, and political perspectives on mental illness . . . Ms. Shannonhouse has performed a profound service in bringing these women’s voices—outraged and compassionate, strong and stricken—to our attention.” —Carl Sherman, author of How to Go to Therapy
