Tomorrow Kenneth Weene, author of Widow’s Walk, will join me as my guest blogger. His post will discuss how he used his psychologist’s training to write his second novel, Memoirs From The Asylum. He will also pop into Ascroft, eh? throughout the day to answer any questions readers may have after reading his post.
About Memoirs From The Asylum: This tragi-comedic novel takes the reader inside the asylum, inside the worlds of three central characters: a narrator who has taken refuge from his fears of the world, a psychiatrist whose own life has been damaged by his father’s depression, and a catatonic schizophrenic whose world is trapped inside a crack in the wall opposite her bed. This is the interwoven story of their lives, a story that includes love, sexuality, violence, deaths, celebrations, circuses, and surprising twists. As the plot unwinds, the reader learns a great deal about the nature of futility, frustration, and freedom.
