A HISTORY OF DELUSIONS The Glass King, a Substitute Husband, and a Walking Corpse

by | Read by Antonia Bath

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This audiobook is based on a popular BBC podcast with the same title. It's not an audio edit of that program but, rather, a rewrite and re-recording of some of the show's noteworthy case studies. Antonia Bath provides a you-are-there narration as the audiobook lurches through the centuries, digging through archival reports of delusional behavior. With her clipped British accent, Bath effectively details the conditions that led to whatever odd behavior is discovered. Although the delusions are fascinating--women who believe they're dead, a king who thinks he's made of glass--much of the material could be condensed or summarized. Devoting an hour to each case study is like listening to a lecture by a professor whose curriculum is dry. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
