"This book at last provides a comprehensive answer to the age-old riddle of whether there are only a small number of 'basic stories' in the world. Using a wealth of examples, from ancient myths and folk tales, via the plays and novels of great literature to the popular movies and TV soap operas of today, it shows that there are seven archetypal themes which recur throughout every kind of storytelling." "But this is only the prelude to an investigation into how and why we are 'programmed' to imagine stories in these ways, and how they relate to the inmost patterns of human psychology. Drawing on a vast array of examples, from Proust to detective stories, from the Marquis de Sade to E.T., Christopher Booker then leads us through the extraordinary changes in the nature of storytelling over the past 200 years, and why so many stories have 'lost the plot' by losing touch with their underlying archetypal purpose."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane is a staple of the Batman universe, evolving into a franchise comprised of comic books, graphic novels, video games, films, television series and more. The Arkham franchise, supposedly light-weight entertainment, has tackled weighty issues in contemporary psychiatry. Its plotlines reference clinical and ethical controversies that perplex even the most up-to-date professionals. The 25 essays in this collection explore the significance of Arkham's sinister psychiatrists, murderous mental patients, and unethical geneticists. It invites debates about the criminalization of the mentally ill, mental patients who move from defunct state hospitals into expanding prisons, madness versus badness, sociopathy versus psychosis, the "insanity defense" and more. Invoking literary figures from Lovecraft to Poe to Caligari, the 25 essays in this collection are a broad-ranging and thorough assessment of the franchise and its relationship to contemporary psychiatry.

Paris in the 1890s. Adam Gould, whose Anglo-Irish father has disowned him, works in a lunatic asylum run by the celebrated Dr Blanche, some of whose patients once starred in France's social firmament and still, when sane, sit at table with distinguished guests. One such patient is Guy de Maupassant. Another is Belcastel, who has taken the blame for a monarchist plot against the Third Republic, then feigned insanity. Madness and uncertain identity drive Adam's story, fuelled by Maupassant's sparkling insights on the matter. Gould falls in love with a married connection of Belcastel's. And things are made no simpler on his return home, when he becomes entangled with a cousin who looks hauntingly like his dead mother. A writer of stunning quality, a novelist of irony and compassion.' The Daily Telegraph Splendidly readable.' William Trevor '...a highly original work of fiction, urbane, elegant and full of esprit.' Patricia Craig Independent '...a remarkable work, written in a style of steely distinction.'

Pour Dan Crawford, un ado de seize ans, un programme estival pour étudiants doués représente la chance d’une vie. Personne d’autre à son école ne comprend sa fascination étrange pour l’histoire et la science, mais au sein du programme préparatoire du Collège du New Hampshire, ces excentricités sont pratiquement des prérequis. À son arrivée, Dan apprend que la résidence estivale habituelle a fermé ses portes, les étudiants à demeurer dans un édifice qui tombe en ruines, Brookline — un ancien hôpital psychiatrique. À mesure que Dan et ses deux nouveaux amis, Abby et Jordan, explorent les couloirs sinueux et le soussol dissimulé de Brookline, ils découvrent des secrets troublants sur les événements survenus entre ses murs... Des secrets qui lient Dan et ses amis au passé sombre de l’asile. Car Brookline n’était pas un hôpital psychiatrique ordinaire. Et certains refusent de demeurer enfouis.

Matthew Ewald's (actor: Galidor, Star Trek Phase II) chilling debut novel of horror from Black Bed Sheet Books. A group of young Animal Liberation Front activists perform a raid on an animal testing lab outside of Ventura, California, not knowing that the facility, Caladine, is a secret government testing ground for bio-engineered fighting hybrids. One of the few to survive the bloodbath, now confined to a psychiatric institution, tells the tale of that night to a gifted psychologist, whose expertise lies within schizophrenic disorders. Where all have failed, she must succeed in unlocking the truth of what happened during a night hidden away in bloodshed and carnage. But, neither the doctor nor the patient realize a far more sinister truth awaits; a truth which says they are being manipulated by the scheming head of the ward, a man who keeps patients as playthings in a basement asylum. By the time they find out these motives of monsters, it is too late for the both of them. A tale of madness becomes their reality. In the end -- to hunt the world's most horrific evil, you'll need to keep your eyes open and look within.
