What is the nature of modern ‘madness’? What is it like to suffer with grief or PTSD or obsessive love? To struggle with other people, or your environment? How do you view others who see the world differently to you? And what does it mean to be considered odd, or eccentric?
ENCOUNTERS WITH EVERYDAY MADNESS is an exceptional collection of stories – some long, some short, some immersive, some detached, some experimental, some traditional – that looks at contemporary ‘madness’ in all its forms.
