From the horrors of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to hopeful stories of recovery, here are some of the best books about these much feared institutions Both real and fictional psychiatric institutions are often described in books as places filled with fear, manipulation and danger. Authors frequently take creative liberties to up the intrigue, and frighten their readers with tales of abuse, hauntings and corruption. Although these themes may have been closer to reality in generations past, one hopes that as a society we are progressing toward better treatment and better facilities.

Tianno walks in calmly and confidently, then sits down. Daisy is less sure – she shuffles in, a bit frozen up, sits down as far from Tianno as possible, but then feels the need to say something. “Horrible weather out there,” she says. (These people are English ones.) Brooke, too, is a little bit shy. She plays with her hair. Miylah is very confident. “I do not like girls,” she announces and sits next to Tianno, who isn’t one.
