Diagnosed at twenty-three with schizophenia, author Lori Schiller recounts the harrowing tale of her illness and treatment after years of living with inescapable Voices -- auditory hallucinations -- both inside and outside of institutions. This is a book, above all, of survival, not recovery, because without daily medication Schiller would return to full-blown schizophrenia. Horrifying, frustrating and inspirational in turns, THE QUIET ROOM gives readers a very authentic look into mental illness and the struggles experienced not only by patients but also by their family members and their therapists.
