FIRES IN THE DARK Healing the Unquiet Mind

by | Read by Beth Hicks, Kay Redfield Jamison

Contemporary Culture • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Beth Hicks's performance is perfectly in sync with this expansive and moving history of treatment for mental suffering by the acclaimed psychotherapist and author of AN UNQUIET MIND. It describes the sparse and often misguided attention given over the years to healing emotional suffering. Jamison's writing is meditative, personal, and richly illustrated with moving stories about treatment pioneers who had a gift for healing people with their hope and willingness to connect. Her own history of bipolar illness and her raw accounts of how victims of war trauma were treated in the past make this audiobook as personal as it is illuminating. Hicks's thoughtful tone fits well with the literary voice of the author. Jamison herself delivers the epilogue. T.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
