Description

A Generous Lover is the true and very queer tale of one soul's journey through the wasteland of mental illness, to deliver their lost love. Brimming with psychedelic proletarian prose and trenchant wit, it recounts the pandemonium of navigating mental health services on behalf of a loved one, whilst being transfeminine (and occasionally being mistaken for a patient). Drawing on epic poetry, classical mythology and queer modernist literature, A Generous Lover fuses psychology, euphonic prose, and song to create an intimate and beguiling world. Somewhere between a seance and a recital, it delves into psychosis with compassion.
