The Wing of Madness: The Life and Work of R.D. Laing
In his final years, R.D. Laing (1927-1989) was arriving at lectures addled with hashish and brandy. Yet, earlier in the 20th-century he was an influential psychiatrist. Still, the author points out he was a man of contradictions, and mystery, and this text explores and searches into this mystery.

I am loving this book so far. I didn't know about RD Laing's family life and so I am finding this book very interesting. I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about RD Laing. Even though I was enjoying this book, I had to put it back on the shelf to read things more directly related to my dissertation. I will come back to it.
