Birds' Nest Soup

Birds' Nest Soup - Hanna Greally In Birds Nest Soup Hanna Greally recounts the terrible suffering she endured in a psychiatric hospital in the Irish Midlands in the 1940s and 50s.I found it a slow and quite repetitive read, although I had to bear in mind this is a true story and therefore 20 years in a psychiatric hospital life would be a slow pace for a patient who knows they should not be there.
