Welcome to Mount Misery psychiatric hospital, home of the crazed,
the suicidal, the Machiavellian and the wicked. And that's just the
doctors. For Dr Roy Basch, proudly starting his residency there, it
is a bewildering and nightmarish experience. The different
disciplines appear to compete with one another to find the best
ways to reduce the patients to gibbering wrecks. As he immerses
himself in the system, he discovers that the process of treating
the patients has less to do with making them better and more with
maintaining the flow of insurance company money. Basch believes
that he can find meaning here, but in an enclosed world which has
lost its head, he soon finds that survival, not meaning, is the
most valuable lesson he will learn. Mount Misery is hilarious,
provocative and terrifying. Filled with biting irony and a
wonderful sense of the absurd, it is an absorbing and authentic
report from within the crumbling fortress of psychiatry and tells
you everything you'll never learn in therapy. And it's a hell of a
sight funnier too.
