Synopsis

'This striking story of motherhood and psychosis grips ... Cho deftly weaves the strands of her experience to create something striking and original' Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times



'Completely devastating. Completely heartbreaking. Written in luminous, spiralling prose' Daisy Johnson, author of Everything Under



'Crystalline ... A brave, brilliant exploration of madness and motherhood' Harper's Bazaar, 10 women who will shape what you watch, see and read in 2020



My psychosis, for all its destruction and wrath, was a love story.



When Catherine left London for the US with her husband James, to introduce her family to their newborn son, she could not have envisaged how that trip would end. Catherine would find herself in an involuntary psych ward in New Jersey, separated from her husband and child, unable to understand who she was, and how she had got there.



It's difficult to know where the story of psychosis begins. Was it the moment I met my son? Or was it decided in the before, something rooted deeper in my fate, generations ago?



In an attempt to hold on to her sense of self, Catherine had to reconstruct her life, from her early childhood, to a harrowing previous relationship, and her eventual marriage to James.



The result is a powerful exploration of psychosis and motherhood, at once intensely personal, yet holding within it a universal experience - of how we love, live and understand ourselves in relation to each other.
