Details

Lisa Appignanesi will be reading from her new novel, Mad, Bad, Sad (McArthur & Company, November 2007), at Hoare's High Tea.

About the book:
Many mental disorders -- hysteria, anorexia, multiple personality, even depression -- are diagnosed more frequently among women than among men. In asking why, Lisa Appignanesi brings vividly to life a series of exceptional, era-defining women and their mind doctors, and explores how women sometimes benefited from treatment, but sometimes did not, even when those giving the therapy were women too.

In Mad, Bad and Sad, Lisa Appignanesi takes us on a fascinating journey through the fragile, extraordinary human mind.

Lisa Appignanesi was born in Poland and grew up in France and Canada. A novelist and writer, she is a former Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and is Deputy President of English PEN. She is the author (with John Forrester) of the classic study, Freud’s Women, and of many bestselling novels, including The Memory Man. She has been made a Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from by the French government in recognition of her contribution to literature. Lisa Appignanesi lives in London.
