Strange Places

(2009)
A Memoir of Mental Illness
A non fiction book by

 
 
A darkly humorous, insightful and searingly honest first-hand account of a journey through schizophrenia from a prodigiously talented writer. In 2006 Will Elliott had his first novel the Pilo Family Circus published. It won five literary awards and great acclaim, nationally and internationally. What nobody knew was that the young author of that work of terrifying fantasy had recently recovered from a psychotic episode and been diagnosed as schizophrenic. Strange Places takes us on a journey through psychosis and out the other side, documenting the delusions, the drugs and the insights that recovery brings. A beautifully written memoir of a harrowing - and enlightening - time, from one of Australia's best young writers.
