    Daphne now Dylan Scholinski relates his experiences and some medical records from when he was a teenager in a mental hospital in the USA Dylan’s story is a heartbreaking warning about families society and a broken psychiatric profession and their inability to accept and love people for who they are What is frightening is that his story did not happen that long ago Dylan describes his life before during and after being institutionalised but most of the book relates his life in the psychiatric wards although the reasons why he was institutionalised in the first place are not made clear I wonder what my parents imagined would happen to me in a mental hospital They wanted the doctors to tame me but they didn't ask and the doctors didn't say exactly what this process entailed It was the doctors who came up wit the idea that I was an inappropriate female that my mouthy ways were a sign of a deep unease in my female nature and that if I learned tips about eyeliner and foundation I'd be better off While Dylan’s story is heartbreaking it is narrated in a way that to me seemed to lack the anger that such an experience might be expected to elicit In his final reflexion Dylan writesEven though I’ve made tons of hospital paintings I can’t change what happened I still wonder why I wasn’t treated for depression why no one noticed I’d been sexually abused why the doctors didn’t seem to believe that I came from a home with physical violence Why the thing they cared the most about was whether I acted the part of a feminine young lady The shame is that the effects of depression sexual abuse violence all treatable But where I stood on the femininemasculine scale unchangeable It’s who I amHis voice is filled with authenticity humour understanding and forgiveness I read the book before going to see its stage adaptation The cast showed up in my local pub after the play and that is how I met Dylan and how we became friends Dylan is now an artist in Denver CO where he works with at risk youth
