Gorilla & The Bird - ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ .
I already posted a picture on this a few days ago when I started reading it but now that I’ve finished, I wanted to tell everyone just how incredible, raw and charming this book is 👏🏻 it’s a contender for one of my favourite books of 2017. It was moving, candid and one book that will stick in my mind for a while ✨
It’s written by Zach McDermott, a public defender in Brooklyn who wakes up one day convinced he is part of a real life Truman show when he is infact suffering from an episode of psychosis. After ending up on subway tracks, he is taken into custody and placed into a psychiatric hospital. He documents his childhood, the ups and downs of growing up, his battle with his mental health and the different stages of his recovery. For anyone who has an interest in mental health, suffers from #bipolar
disorder or loves raw, emotional real life stories, this is one for you.
