About this product
- DescriptionHammerite spider charts the struggles of a young construction worker trying to get to grips with mental illness. This struggle develops at several levels: his ability to cope with the type of lifestyle considered the rm for building workers - hard work followed by copious amounts of alcohol. But there's something about Joey that can't hack this lifestyle, something's t right and alcohol becomes a prop for something more sinister. Eventually hospitalised, Joey gradually realises that his struggles have become ever more complex. Traumatised, but moved by what he sees around him, igred and abused by the people he'd sought help from he develops a hard-sed level of nihilism towards psychiatry that would mould his character for years to come. A tale of self-harm, alcohol abuse, major depression and the appalling fate of our suicidal young that Chipmunkapublishing is trying so hard to put an end to.
