In the 1930s, Frances Farmer was acclaimed as a rising star with a brilliant future to look forward to. But suddenly she was thrown into a state insane asylum (as they were then called). Her name erased from the official movie-studio history books-it was as though she never existed. This is a true story of what really happened to this young woman and the story of the author's search to find her buried life. It is also the tale of how institututions of society, law, psychiatry, and family converge to break a will and destroy a life. A harrowing story. 260 pages. 8.75 x 6 inches. McGraw-Hill, New York, 1978.
