Mount Misery: A Novel
Samuel Shem, M.D.

Follow House of God hero Dr. Roy Basch to the prestigious psychiatric hospital Mount Misery, which sports the motto "There's Sanity in Misery." Basch soon finds himself in mental mayhem for the well-insured. A practicing psychiatrist himself, the author understands the method and madness of psychiatric practices in an age of managed care, and no theory is safe from his lacerating wit. "Remember," Basch learns, "psychiatrists specialize in their own diseases." Impossible to put down, this book is funny, frightening, and provocative, written with the ring of truth only possible when one has been there and lived to tell the tale.
