Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
It's New Year's Eve and while dining out with her husband and their friends, Binnie Kirshenbaum's protagonist - an acerbic, mordantly witty, and clinically depressed writer - fully unravels. Her breakdown lands her in the psych ward, where she refuses all modes of recommended treatment. Instead, she passes the time chronicling the lives of her fellow "lunatics" and writing a novel about what brought her there. Her story is a hilarious and harrowing deep dive into the disordered mind of a woman who sees the world all too clearly.
