Horatio Clare – Heavy Light: A Journey through Madness, Mania and Healing

26/06/2021 at 10:30 11:30

Book cover for Heavy Light by Horatio Clare

From hypomania in the Alps, to a complete breakdown and a locked ward in Wakefield, Horatio Clare provides a gripping account of how the mind loses touch with reality, how we fall apart and how we can be healed – or not – by treatment. Heavy Light is a story of the wonder and intensity of the manic experience, as well as its peril and strangeness, it is shot through with the love, kindness, humour and care of those who deal with someone who becomes dangerously ill.

Partly a tribute to those who looked after the author, from family and friends to strangers and professionals, and partly an investigation into how we understand and treat acute crises of mental health, Heavy Light’s beauty, power and compassion illuminate a fundamental part of human experience. It asks urgent questions about mental health that affect each and every one of us.
