Based on a true story, Jekyll And Hide Me Not presents the reader with a startling glimpse into the dark realities of mental illness. Skillfully crafted by author Sherry Bach, Jekyll draws its considerable power from its ability to paint the mentally ill in vivid, realistic fashion, rather than presenting them as over-exaggerated caricatures. In so doing, Bach highlights the importance of remembering that – even though they may commit some of the most heinous acts known to man – the victims of mental illness are still human underneath it all, and thus deserving of our understanding and ultimate forgiveness.
Touching, heartrending, and ultimately encouraging, Jekyll and Hide Me Not is a powerful testament to the common humanity within us all.
