Manuscript Monday: My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward

On this weeks Manuscript Monday Lindsay recommends "My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward" by Mark Lukach. 

My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward by Mark Lukach is a memoir about a husband's "intensely personal odyssey through the harrowing years of his wife's mental illness". Mark's wife, Giulia, suffers several psychotic breaks that land her in the psychiatric ward, both before and after having their son. This is Mark's story about how he copes, takes care of his son, and tries to support his wife from afar. It's a book about love, relationships, mental illness, family, and inner strength and fragility. Definitely worth the read!
