South London, the summer of '89. Dan Blake's been sectioned and he's trying to work out why. Life in Woodland Park Hospital is no picnic, but it does have its moments.
'House of Bread is very impressive. Vivid, painful and completely engrossing.'
'This is an extremely well written, intelligent, sharp, funny, sad and philosophical novel. Dan's got 'clinical happiness' and I've not seen a better descriptive fictional account of this disorder.'
'This book is a must for anyone with either a passion for a good read or an interest in mental health. The description of the roller coaster highs and lows of bipolar disorder is perfect in every detail and challenges us on every page.'
