About this work

Description

A selection of prose and poetry written by those whom society has deemed mentally unbalanced, this book is an international compilation involving the active participation of individuals and institutions in the United States, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and France. It is an anthology meant to be a window on alternative ways of seeing, a beginner's guide to what the "insane" can offer those...with more conventional outlooks. Introduced by Kurt Vonnegut, this volume contains more than three hundred works, including short essays, poems, and stories, by nearly one hundred individuals. Most of the contributors have never before been published, and currently are institutionalized. -- From back cover.
