Out of Her Mind, edited by Rebecca Shannonhouse, captures the best literature by and about women struggling with madness. A remarkable chronicle of gifted and unconventional women who have spun their inner turmoil into literary gold, the collection features classic short stories, breathtaking literary excerpts, key historical writings, and previously unpublished letters by Zelda Fitzgerald.
Shannonhouse’s recent anthology, Under the Influence: The Literature of Addiction, is also available as a Modern Library Paperback Original. --- from the publisher

“A stirring anthology of the best and most searing writings that brightly illuminate the dark side of so many women’s lives.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A startling, stunning, wise, heartbreaking, and most useful collection . . . a book for soulful and literary people of all genders, everywhere.” —Phyllis Chesler, Ph.D., author of Women and Madness and Letters to a Young Feminist

“The wide range of work includes arresting first-person descriptions of mental illness.” —Library Journal

“A rich mosaic of historical, social, and political perspectives on mental illness . . . Ms. Shannonhouse has performed a profound service in bringing these women’s voices—outraged and compassionate, strong and stricken—to our attention.” —Carl Sherman, author of How to Go to Therapy

Rebecca Shannonhouse is a freelance writer and editor. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, and other publications. She lives in New York City.
