Publisher's Synopsis

'A profound memoir' Daily Telegraph
'As revealing as the writing of Oliver Sacks' Mark Cousins

Outside the Asylum
is Lynne Jones's personal and highly acclaimed exploration of humanitarian psychiatry and the changing world of international relief. Her memoir graphically describes her experiences in war zones and disasters around the world, from the Balkans and 'mission-accomplished' Iraq, to tsunami-affected Indonesia, post-earthquake Haiti and 'the Jungle' in Calais.
