Out of Me by Fiona Shaw
Book Description'Driving away from the hospital on Sunday afternoon I was thrilled with my baby and eager to be back with my little girl'. Fiona Shaw has a loving husband, a dream cottage in Yorkshire and has just given birth to her second child. Ten days later she is hospitalized in a psychiatric unit for severe postnatal depression. In this powerful memoir she describes how the 'Baby Blues' suddenly developed into something much more serious, and recalls the months of despair which nearly destroyed her. She eventually emerged from the nightmare and produced this startling testimony and regained control of her life and triumphed over the past.

Books By Author Fiona Shaw
Stone's Throw, Paperback (April 2013)
Set in England and Africa, opening during World War Two, this book is about how secrets linger and the price we pay to keep them. Most of all, it is about the choices we make, about consequences - and how we must, finally, let go of the past and face the future.
Theatre and Ireland, Paperback (July 2010)
Often regarded as innately performative, Ireland has been the location for the 'drama' of rebellion and anti-colonial insurgency. This book argues that theatre in Ireland is a cultural phenomenon that is not restricted to professional, urban theatre, but is rooted in alternative and competing traditions of popular drama and performance.
Picture She Took, Paperback (June 2006)
'The kind of sophisticated historical romance that matches anything by Sebastian Faulks or Penelope Fitzgerald' - Independent on Sunday. From the author of THE SWEETEST THING, a bittersweet love story about two people damaged by war.
Routledge Reader in Gender and Performance, Paperback (September 1998)» View all books by Fiona Shaw
This Reader reviews ways in which sexuality has been explored and expressed in new forms of performance art and dance, women's contributions to theatre history, and how theatre has represented women over the centuries.
UK Kirkus Review » A haunting work about the most harrowing and mysterious of experiences - postnatal psychosis - written with clarity and beauty. In the attempt to make sense of what happened to her, Fiona Shaw both analysed her medical records and searched her past, interviewed psychiatrists and underwent psychotherapy. What emerges is often a shocking indictment of psychiatric practices, while making clear the desolate absence of alternative solutions for this grotesque, self-destructive, wretched experience. In trying to trace the roots of her misery back through her childhood she does not necessarily emerge with any concrete answers, but she does learn to ask different questions. Vital reading for anyone similarly affected. (Kirkus UK)
