post 76

“You’re all sick!” screeched my friend Deb, who works in a psychiatric hospital and has a front-row seat at the unwitting fashion show that is mental illness. “Walk around any in-patient unit: Lots of people are sitting around with things tied around their heads, just like Little Edie. They are not making a fashion statement; they are trying to block out the voices in their heads,” railed my pal when I recently presented her with a copy of the Maysles book.
