Lament

£7.99

Briony Bax leads the reader through the brutal world of mental illness and specifically an account of an individual’s journey with schizophrenia. A world where sections, court rooms, locked wards, tribunals, and assessment centres form the backdrop of the daily living of sufferers and caregivers. Through honesty and testimony, it shines a light on the disastrous effects of government austerity measures on the mentally ill.

Briony Bax is a poet and editor. She’s edited Ambit Magazine since 2013 and her poems have appeared in Ambit, Meat, Herrings Anthology and New River Press Anthology. She is the poetry editor for The New European. As a social advocate she’s the Founder of The Orphan Support League in the USA and has volunteered at the Saidia Children’s Home in Gilgil, Kenya for the last 12 years. She sits on the Board of Trustees for Theatre Ad Infinitum, Saidia Children’s Charity, The Wells Maltings Trust and serves as a local councilor in Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk.
