Description
Information
The narrator of this compelling and unusual novel is an inmate of Bedlam, the London mental asylum. He is living chained to a wall in unspeakably horrible conditions, yet he is witty, urbane and seemingly sane. He reflects on freedom, on love and on love lost, and on the fleeting nature of happiness.As this beautifully constructed story unfolds we learn about the bizarre treatments he has endured under the asylum's curative regimen, his life before Bedlam, and the answers to the critical questions: Why is this man here? What has he done?This novel deftly explores the devious in human affairs and the intricacies of language to create a brilliant and utterly memorable book.
