    Nearing her 100th birthday, Roseanne McNulty faces an uncertain future, as the Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital where's she spent most of her adult life prepares for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks with her psychiatrist, Dr. Greene, and their relationship intensifies and complicates. Told through their respective journals, the story that emerges is at once shocking and deeply beautiful.

    Katrine says: "Grim, and somehow elating.."
    "Horrid and nasty"
    Overall

    This is a horrid and nasty little book which I could not finish. The author needs to take a serious course of antidepressants and not inflict his twaddle on the reading public. The author is a somewhat skilled wordsmith but apparently thinks heaping one tragedy on another without end is writing.
    I don't expect a book to have a Hollywood ending but surely there has to be some point to the book other that showing how awful a country Ireland was, how evil the Catholic clergy were and how tragic and meaningless all human life is.
