EX­AM­INED LIVES by Roberta Reb Allen

The cau­tion­ary but hope­ful story of a woman who was un­nec­es­sar­ily lobotomized and of her young daugh­ter.

“Over­all, this is a well writ­ten and re­searched story. It should res­onate with a wide read­er­ship, par­tic­u­larly those touched by men­tal ill­ness” —BlueInk Review

“A me­thod­i­cally jour­nal­is­tic ap­proach to sto­ry­telling el­e­vates this per­sonal tale by lend­ing it au­thor­i­ta­tive ex­per­tise. Ex­am­ined Lives tack­les univer­sal is­sues with a prob­ing drive to­ward un­der­stand­ing...” —Fore­word Clar­ion

“A deft ac­count of men­tal ill­ness and moth­er­hood.”
