BeschreibungA memoir that sets out to reveal the true story of life in a psychiatric ward. Recounting the stories of the patients the author worked with, and those of the friends he made on the ward, it provides a detailed account of day-to-day life behind the doors of the most feared and stigmatised environment in healthcare.
PortraitDennis O'Donnell was born in Scotland and attended Edinburgh University where he read English. He was an English teacher for many years before leaving to become a psychiatric orderly. He now lives in West Lothian.
Pressestimmen"I really enjoyed The Locked Ward. He is compassionate without any taint of sentimentality, and the way he uses language is so elastic. It's like he's the most brilliant court-jester in the most colourful of courts. Bravo to him!" -- Gabriel Weston, Author Of Direct Red
