Have you ever wondered what real psychosis is like? If so, then READ THIS BOOK! Released in January, 2014 by Pen-L Publishing, Arthur Thomas Morton's biography - WAY OUT: A true account of schizophrenia - chronicles Eugene Uttley's bizarre delusions and hallucinations.
Online PR News – 20-February-2014 – Bloomington/Indiana – Approximately one in a hundred people suffer from schizophrenia, a grave disorder characterized by delusions and/or hallucinations, among other symptoms. In Eugene Uttley's case, the delusions are profound and kaleidoscopic, involving spirits and extraterrestrials, celebrities and spies... In his extended period of psychosis, Eugene also experiences auditory hallucinations – he hears voices nearly constantly, and believes himself to be in telepathic communication with the objects of his delusions.
Arthur Morton examines Eugene's life and illness in great detail. Morton brings us fully into Eugene's world, revealing the fascinating workings of the schizophrenic mind. Joining Eugene on a mad journey which spans decades and continents, the author captures the essence of the illness and the bizarre, desperate behavior it can cause.
From a secure job and comfortable lifestyle, Eugene is reduced to raving in the streets. Struggling for survival as an illegal alien in Asia, on the road in America, and even in jail, Eugene weathers a turbulent storm of thoughts from which he can find no shelter, like a maze with no way out. Morton painstakingly tracks his progress in this raw and gripping case history, which includes unflinching accounts of drug abuse, homelessness, and despair, as well as true friendship, love, and hope.
