A Tale of Despair and Hope in 1950s England
Thank you for visiting the website of Bill Douglas, author of Mad Worlds: A Tale of Despair and Hope in 1950s England.
Mad Worlds... is a novel set in an era when England still operated under harsh, stigmatising Victorian legislation in the field of mental health. Readers are invited to eavesdrop on realistic scenarios, both within and outside a mental asylum of the 1950s. With flashes of dark humour, this is an intriguing, sometimes horrifying tale suitable for fans of historical fiction and those who are interested in the issues of mental health, relationships and loss.
