«Un viaggio unico e incomparabile nella mente umana. » Cosmopolitan «Daniel Keyes meriterebbe un premio per la sua attenta analisi psicologia e per l’estrema umanità con la quale si è avvicinato a un problema tanto complesso.» Best Sellers «Un libro sconvolgente.» The Los Angeles Times Il 27 ottobre 1977, la polizia di Columbus, Ohio, arresta il ventiduenne Billy Milligan con l'accusa di aver rapito, violentato e rapinato tre studentesse universitarie. Billy ha vari precedenti penali e contro di lui ci sono prove schiaccianti. Ma, durante la perizia psichiatrica richiesta dalla difesa, emerge una verità sconcertante: Billy soffre di un gravissimo disturbo dissociativo dell'identità. Nella sua mente «vivono» ben 10 personalità distinte, che interagiscono tra loro, prendono di volta in volta il sopravvento e spingono Billy a comportarsi in maniera imprevedibile. Nel corso del processo si manifestano il gelido Arthur, 22 anni, che legge e scrive l'arabo; il timoroso Danny, 14 anni, che dipinge solo nature morte; il violento Ragen, 23 anni, iugoslavo, che parla serbo-croato ed è un esperto di karate; la sensibilissima Christene, 3 anni, che sa scrivere e disegnare, ma soffre di dislessia; e poi Allen, Tommy, David, Adalana e Christopher. Così, per la prima volta nella storia giudiziaria americana, il tribunale emette una sentenza di non colpevolezza per infermità mentale. Tuttavia Billy rimane un rebus irrisolto fino a quando, durante il ricovero in un istituto specializzato, a poco a poco non affiorano altre 14 identità autonome, tra cui spicca «il Maestro», la sintesi della vita e dei ricordi di tutti i 23 alter ego. E proprio grazie alla sua collaborazione è stato possibile scrivere questo libro, che con la passione e lo slancio di un resoconto in presa diretta ricostruisce l'incredibile vicenda di Billy Milligan e ci permette di entrare in quella «stanza piena di gente» che è la sua psiche. Una visita che ci lascia sconvolti e turbati, ma che ci induce a riflettere sull'abisso nascosto in ogni uomo. Perché, come scrive lo stesso Billy all'autore: «Solo chiudendo la porta sul mondo reale, noi potremo vivere in pace nel nostro».

Billy Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy over his body - a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women. In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality disorder - the first such court decision in history. Among the twenty-four are: Philip, a petty criminal; Kevin, who dealt drugs; April, whose only ambition was to kill Billy's stepfather; Adalana, the shy, affection-starved lesbian who 'used' Billy's body in the rapes that led to his arrest; David, the eight-year-old 'keeper of the pain'; and the Teacher, the sum of all Billy's alter egos fused into one. In The Minds of Billy Milligan, Daniel Keyes brings to light the most remarkable and harrowing case of multiple personality ever recorded. 'Fascinating' LA Times '[Keyes] has carried it off brilliantly, bringing not only a fine clarity but a special warmth and empathy' Washington Post

Patrick McGrath has created his most psychologically penetrating vision to date: a nightmare world rocked to its foundations by a passion of such force and intensity that it shatters the lives--and minds--of all who are touched by it. Stella Raphael, a woman of great beauty and formidable intelligence, is married to Max, a staid and unimaginative forensic psychiatrist. Max has taken a job in a huge top-security mental hospital in rural England, and Stella, far from London society, finds herself restless and bored. Into her lonely existence comes Edgar Stark, a brilliant sculptor confined to the hospital after killing his wife in a psychotic rage. He comes to Stella's garden to rebuild an old Victorian conservatory there, and Stella cannot ignore her overwhelming physical attraction to this desperate man. Their explosive affair pits them against Stella's husband, her child, and the entire institution. When the crisis comes to a head, Stella makes a decision--one that will destroy several lives and precipitate an appalling tragedy that could only be fueled by illicit sexual love. Asylum is a terrifying exploration of the extremes to which erotic obsession can drive us. Patrick McGrath brings his own dazzling blend of cool artistry and visceral engagement to this mesmerizing story of a fatal love and its unspeakably tragic aftermath. And in Stella Raphael, a woman who tears down the walls of her constricted existence to pursue a dangerous passion, he has created a character who will long be remembered for her willingness to take the ultimate risk, even if she must pay the ultimate price.

Dopo Una stanza piena di gente, un nuovo, affascinante viaggio negli oscuri recessi della mente umana Una donna. Quattro personalità diverse. Un viaggio attraverso i recessi insondabili della mente umana. Sally Porter apre gli occhi in un letto d’ospedale. Non ha nessun ricordo della sera precedente né di come sia finita lì. Di una cosa però è certa: non è possibile che abbia tentato il suicidio, come le hanno riferito i medici, e neppure che abbia quasi ucciso i due uomini che l’hanno salvata per poi cercare di violentarla. Eppure i medici non mentono, ed è così che Sally scopre di soffrire di un grave disturbo dissociativo dell’identità. Infatti era Nola, l’artista che possiede uno studio al Greenwich Village, che voleva morire, ed è stata Jinx, la violenta assassina, a difendersi dagli aggressori. Tuttavia in Sally albergano altre due personalità, che prendono di volta in volta il sopravvento e la spingono a comportarsi in maniera bizzarra: Derry, la cameriera gentile e affabile con tutti, e Bella, la seduttrice. Sconvolta da quella rivelazione, Sally chiede aiuto al dottor Roger Ash, un esperto di personalità multipla. Per il dottor Ash, l’unica soluzione è fondere le diverse personalità per dare vita alla «quinta Sally», una Sally finalmente unita e completa. Si tratta di un procedimento complesso e doloroso, in cui Sally dovrà rivivere i traumi che hanno causato la scissione e accettarli come parte integrante del suo passato. Ma non sarà facile nemmeno per Roger Ash, perché le ombre nascoste nel labirinto della psiche di quella donna così tormentata ed enigmatica lo costringeranno ad affrontare anche i suoi demoni… Ispirato ai casi che Daniel Keyes ha studiato durante la sua lunga carriera, questo romanzo è un viaggio attraverso i recessi più oscuri e insondabili della mente umana e un’ideale continuazione del percorso cominciato dall’autore con Una stanza piena di gente.

For fans of Downton Abbey, the second volume of the critically acclaimed Cazalet saga takes readers into the lives of an extended British family and their devoted retinue It is 1939, and Hitler has just invaded Poland. The exigencies of wartime will force the Cazalets to make difficult choices as the older children are evacuated from London and settled in Home Place, their longtime Sussex summer estate. Narrated primarily through the voices of three Cazalet cousins—sixteen-year-old Louise and fourteen-year-old Polly and Clary—Marking Time details the continuing saga of their fathers. With the outbreak of war, Edward is determined to do his part for England. Hugh, crippled in World War I, must sit back and watch other men fight for their country, including his brother Rupert, who enlists and goes missing in action. The Cazalets’ story plays out against the greater drama unfolding on the world stage. Three young girls yearn for the freedom they believe adulthood will confer upon them in this tale of struggle and sacrifice, love and loss, as a new generation of Cazalets makes itself heard. With strong female characters such as the stoic Kitty; her daughter, Rachel, who’s in a relationship with another woman; and the loyal governess Miss Milliment, Marking Time explores the role of women during the war amid early stirrings of feminism.

How it happened that Mastro Cherry, carpenter, found a piece of wood that wept and laughed like a child Centuries ago there lived-- "A king!" my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.

Sally Porter is a drab waitress, divorcee, and loner in the great city. But, though she is unaware of it, she is also four other, quite different people: Nola, the cold independent artist who has a studio in Greenwich Village; Derry, the happy-go-lucky tomboy; Bella, the sexpot with a talent for singing and dancing; and finally Jinx, the hate- filled killer. Whenever events put too much of a strain on Sally Porter, she feels a headache and a blackout coming on - and a new character takes over. If there is a man to be fascinated, she will become Bella. If there is an intellectual problem, she will become Nola. And - as happens in the opening scene of the novel - if there is a rapist to be dealt with, she becomes the vicious Jinx. It is the task of the wise and patient psychiatrist, Dr. Roger Ash - a man who nevertheless has severe problems of his own - to deal with this case of multiple personality and, through painstaking therapy, to try to fuse the four disparate personalities into "the fifth Sally."
