The Shock of the Fall

Review from Royal College of Psychiatrists site

Reviewed by Nathan Filer       18/02/2014
The Shock of the Fall is a book which the author, Nathan Filer, originally envisaged in a different format. He had pictured it composed of the materials written on and by the narrator, Matt, such as type-written sheets. Matt suffers from treatment resistant schizophrenia and uses the resources at his Day Centre in Bristol to write his story. Nathan Filer is a psychiatric nurse and his professional experience and his compassion and empathy for his patients shines through in this eloquent and moving account, not only of life with schizophrenia but also of loss and grief
