Author/Illustrator/Editor: Jodi Lundgren (CA)
‘Touched’ renders the emotional and intellectual implosion experienced by Jade King, a young university student. This debut novel challenges the social stigma attached to such altered states and traces the effects of physical violation and psychic trauma. Lundgren encourages a critical examination of current psychiatric labels and treatments through a narrative that interweaves family history, legal texts, medical documents-and brave, phantasmagoric writing.
" ‘Touched’ unfolds in poignant and insightful prose that clings to you long after you’ve turned the last page." - Room Magazine
