In Case the Voices Return is a powerful book that offers readers an unabashed testimony about an uncomfortable reality: mental disorders.
A few years ago Ángel Martín broke down completely. So much so that they had to tie him to the bed of a psychiatric hospital to prevent him from being able to hurt himself. In 2017, the comedian had to be admitted for a psychotic episode. He had previously seen himself at the controls of a spaceship, wanted to fly and conversed with death, defying it. “I have no idea when my madness began to form. Maybe I was born genetically predisposed. Maybe I was macerating a depression by keeping certain things to myself so as not to worry others. Or maybe there are simply brains that one night crack and that’s it,” confesses the author.
A surprising testimony about madness.
A first-person account of what it means to lose oneself and have to rebuild oneself from scratch.
A vital story that grabs you from the first line.
