In F. Scott Fitzgerald's book The Crack Up, he mentions in passing the memoir of a man who had himself committed to an institution. Both he and Fitzgerald had cracked under the same pressure, or so Fitzgerald thought. The man was William Seabrook, a world-famous travel writer from the Lost Generation and the book was Asylum. In 1934, Seabrook knew he was slowly drinking himself to death and entered an insane asylum. There, from the perspective of a travel writer, he described his own journey thr [...]

Asylum By William Seabrook is a self-help and non-fiction read."With zombies in vogue and his books coming back onto the market after decades out of print, maybe old Willie Seabrook, the lost king of the weird, can finally get the recognition and infamy he earned." ― Benjamin Welton, ViceThis dramatic memoir recounts an eight-month stay at a Westchester mental hospital in the early 1930s. William Seabrook, a renowned journalist and explorer, voluntarily committed himself to an asylum for treat [...]

Fascinating patient’s-eye view of a happy but all-too-brief period in mental-health care. Physical restraint (straitjackets and the like) had been abandoned. Shock therapies, lobotomies and neurotoxic pharmaceuticals had yet to be introduced. Seabrook writes:“This whole phase of modern psychiatric therapy, itemed to me, was legitimate and successfulif costly. I am not using costly as a weasel-word or metaphor. I do not mean that it was costly in terms of gouged eyes or broken bones. I mean t [...]

For those that want to get a glimpse of how the world treated Alcoholism before AA then Seabrook's biography is a great starting place. I've been wanting to read it ever since I heard it mentioned in the Big Book (1st edition) story Women Suffer Too. Seabrook tells of his treatment while in an Asylum. The book itself is in need of a good editor as he tends to chase rabbits; however, the tale itself is still haunting and powerful. Perhaps the saddest part is Seabrook has glimpses of some of AA's [...]

A sense of well being is a sense of well being even if toxically induced-- William Seabrook, Asylum

Erica
This book was amazing. Not in that it was thrilling or horrifying or anything I thought it would be when I picked it up But it was insightful, appreciative, deep, profound! I wouldn't say that Seabrook is an amazing writer, but he has this ability to empathize not only with others but his own troubled self. His struggles are so human, and very prevalent still to this day. I think it might have been very hard in his time to admit you had an addiction and to try and find a way to fix it when addic [...]

"Whiskey was a gift of the gods--dangerous, like fire and all gifts from heaven--to be used by the strong man with pleasure for joy, to solace and stimulate the imagination, to clothe reality in rosy light, evoke elusive happiness. I had misused it as a stupefying poison, to deaden consciousness--as an escape."Don't expect a harrowing tale of violent withdrawal but a realistic account of hospitalization from a guy who drank a quart and a half of whiskey a day. Writing is occasionally brilliant a [...]

In one of the original stories in AA's "Big Book," the first female AA (I think) talks about having read "Bill Seabrook's story" about getting "cured" of his alcoholism in an asylum. This book IS that story. It is an historically fascinating personal account of pre-AA treatment for alcoholics, and it also held a special fascination for me as a recovering alcoholic. Mr. Seabrook did not actually ever STOP drinking. His "cure" allowed him to drink sensibly and stop when he felt like it. Bbwwwaahah [...]

When taken as an anthropological study of a distinct culture or place in the vein of Margaret Meade this is a interesting and somewhat compelling read. There is very little narrative to speak of and drags on a bit, the book functions more as a travelogue through a mental institution and sobriety itself. The only major critique I have is the inclusion of the extended direct quoting of Philip, the piece starts off well enough but quickly degenerates into rather nonsensical blathering.

Joshua Pitzalis
I thought the writing was awkward at times. It was a report, not a story. A report of a drunkard who goes to a mental hospital to take care of his drinking habit. It is a lot like One flew over the cuckoo's nest.He comes uncover the root cause of his drinking problem towards the end of the book but it was too neat, everything nicely tied up at the end. Life is never that neat.

Sherry Weitzen
Unique, interesting writing style, providing insight into a mental hospital and encounters with men experiencing psychiatric conditions. Also some interesting outlooks on alcohol use disorder. I had never heard of William Seabrook before, but after reading this book, I want to learn mor.

Adrian Fulneczek
Couldn't make myself finish it. Love most asylum-books, but this one is just too detached, uneven.

Alex
Apparantly a very well-written memoir of an addict who commits himself to a mental institution.
