Setting the Wire: A Memoir of Postpartum Psychosis by Sarah C. Townsend

Regular price $14.95 Sale

From The Lettered Streets Press:

Setting the Wire is a memoir of postpartum psychosis and a meditation on containment: what we hold and what holds us together. A lyric exploration of motherhood, mental illness, and familial ties, Sarah C. Townsend’s debut work weaves together personal anecdote, film, music, visual art, and psychology. Setting the Wire is a visceral reflection on the experience of fragmentation as a young psychotherapist and new mother.

"Taut, lyrical, wise writing.” – Claire Dederer, author of Love and Trouble

"Townsend drops us masterfully into a state of mind almost over the edge but never completely." – Theo Pauline Nestor, author of Writing Is My Drink

“This memoir has . . . water and earth. Body and mind. Something like ‘a shard’ between.” – Bhanu Kapil
