Description

Max has just been sectioned and she doesn’t know why. She’s completely healthy, or so she thinks. But how does she know what’s healthy and how can she tell what’s real? Meanwhile, someone’s drawn Eamon Holmes on the blackboard, Damon Albarn’s faked his own death, and the only thing that’s on the TV is A Question of Sport. Written by Michael Hajiantonis, based on his own experience, Going Slightly Mad is an honest and unflinching account of the mental health services in the United Kingdom, both humorous and uncompromising in equal measure.
