Nancy Drake homelessness trauma and mental illnesse shares something not only Bandbox hideous but also universal Many readers will be able to identify with some of these struggles even if in society we rarely talk about them You could perhaps argue that Thistle s problems and struggles are just self imposed but personally I think this book makes it clear thatitting rock bottom and sinking very
