This book probes institutional life through nine fascinating profiles. In the words of its author: "The unalloyed truth is that I'm in thrall to idiosyncracy. It possibly could be said that I actually love pathology. Well, let me explain: It's that I love to be near it, to see it, to observe it with a clinical eye. I feel strongly sympathetic toward people who are severely and emotionally and psychologically ill. I see pathology as an expressionist and Cubist rendition of reality." You will not soon forget these nine stories, or how Dr. Kellerman deals with the delusional, the unusual and strange, in a modern setting
