Distorted Mind: Mental Illness Revealed Written by Michael Fortnam

“The memoir offers a realistic, unembellished look at one man’s mental struggle. Most enlightening when describing the author’s actions—such as shopping sprees during manic episodes—the story paints an unglamorous, astute portrayal of being unable to trust one’s own mind,”

Author Michael Fortnam recounts his psychological struggle in Distorted Mind: Mental Illness Revealed. A quick read at sixty-four pages, the story sheds light on the nature of madness that only a person who suffers it is able to do.

Written in the traditional three-act structure and told in the first-person perspective, the book begins at the infancy of Fortnam’s mania in his college days. The chaos escalates during his confinement in a psychiatric hospital, and the episodic experience ends with his enlightenment and suppression of his insanity. Fortnam’s prose reflects the turbulence of delusion hidden in the solitude of depression.

“The memoir offers a realistic, unembellished look at one man’s mental struggle. Most enlightening when describing the author’s actions—such as shopping sprees during manic episodes—the story paints an unglamorous, astute portrayal of being unable to trust one’s own mind,” a reviewer from Kirkus Reviews says.

Intended to relay the wisdom gained from a scarred psyche, Fortnam’s story will appeal to readers who seek insight on insanity.
