Media in the Mail: Shockheaded Peter
My friend Clare sent me a copy of her book 98 Reasons for Being, a historical novel set in a German asylum in 1852. The doctor who sees her is the historical Heinrich Hoffmann, psychiatrist and author of the children's book Der Struwwelpeter (Shockheaded Peter). Clare is a fantastic writer. Her book One Day the Ice Will Reveal All Its Dead is one of the most memorable I've ever read. (Here's my review.) I'm really looking forward to reading this one!
