Editors Note Documents a psychiatrist's employment at New York City's Bellevue Hospital while sharing the life lessons she learned from her patients and colleagues, describing some of the more remarkable cases of her career, her friendship with a cancer-stricken mentor, and their influences on her family life.
Annotation Doctor Julie Holland worked for nine years at New York's legendary Bellevue Hospital as the psychiatrist in charge of admitting patients into the psych ward. In her harrowing yet fascinating memoir Holland describes the vast array of cases she witnessed during that time--from serial killers to people losing their minds from trauma or psychedelic drugs. She provides insight into the inherent fragility of the human mind and describes how her own mental stability was damaged by the incessant madness of her job.
