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

Theatre and Ireland by Fiona Shaw 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.

Reviews

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)
