Summary I can more or less guarantee that you know someone for whom this book will be important and inspiring. There's a very strong chance that person will be you.' Stephen Fry. Dr Martin Homer is a GP with a naturally sunny disposition. Honourable, attentive and trusted by all of his patients, Martin has only ever loved one woman - his wife, Sarah. When his mother dies suddenly, Martin's comfortable life is thrown into complete disarray. After sinking into the black dog of grief and depression, he ascends to new heights in a frenzied, manic high. Now, he's never felt better! In between riding his new skateboard around the streets at night and self-medicating from his stash at work, the artificially elated and self-entitled Martin crosses paths with Bella, a beautiful and sexual young woman profoundly damaged by trauma of her own. In Two Minds takes you on a quirky, rollicking journey that unveils the complexities of mental illness with wit and warmth. Gordon Parker's impressive career in psychiatry reveals itself through extremely rich descriptions of depression, bipolar and borderline personality characteristics
