Description

Park City Library is eager to host Daniel Cureton, author of Monster Brain: Conversations with OCD.

Enter a world where anxiety rules and compulsion is the tool. Like fighting a dragon with a tooth pick, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder takes many forms and has many techniques to torture and abuse its victims. It feeds on fear, dread, and suffering. To relieve the pain, sufferers develop habits, called compulsions, deflecting OCD's obsessive gaze for a while, before it breaks through and returns with a vengeance. This book is a work of art, on public exhibition. You will find 50 original poems and writings dealing with OCD, its affects, and rediscovering that there is life after diagnosis. Travel alongside one man's journey as he falls into the dark recesses of his mind, finds inner strength, and is reborn in this narrative of the inner worlds. Allow yourself to experience the beauty and terror of Monster Brain
