Book Pick of the Week!
Voluntary Madness by Norah Vincent is a nonfiction account of her pretending to be seriously depressed to enter into a mental rehabilitation facility. This is her second book where she pushes the envelope to see the truth behind what it feels like to be in someone else's shoes. In her first book Self-Made Man, she went undercover as a man and speculated the differences in behavior from others around her toward the new identity. Check this Girl, Interrupted book out for a true story that will change your mind about "loony bins" forever.
