Piltdownlad #6: Institutionalized

This issue features the "Institutionalized" story cycle, which is an exploration of one event told from the individual perspectives of four participants. Picks up where The Nasty Dear (Piltdownlad #4) left off: from the Jackson group home in Anniston, Alabama, to Hillcrest Hospital, a mental hospital in Birmingham, where my brother Joey is put in the Youth Ward and I end up in the Adolescent Ward. Meanwhile, our father and Rick come home to discover their fate: a potential life sentence for child sexual abuse. Interspersed among the narrative are actual court records from the trial, newspaper clippings, song lyrics, photos and other miscellany.

As with all issues of Piltdownlad, not for the fainthearted or the hardhearted. 

Also includes a letter and comment sections and zine reviews. 


typewritten and photocopied
wrap around cover
perfect bound
100 pages
5.5 x 8.5

Hi, I will be curating a list of 10 zine about mental health for the zine librarian's web site. I wondered, if anyone has advice for me on what they look for and value in a mental health zine? What would be helpful to you? Is there a certain topic that you would like to explore more and would like to see more zines about? Thanks!

Comment by Fluxxii on July 8, 2013 at 7:37pm
