Giving voice to the silenced inmates of the Willard State Mental Hospital, All My Bones Are Broken reveals the often ignored world that lies within insane asylums. Inspired by the contents of hundreds of suitcases found in the attic of an abandoned mental hospital, Laurel Marks follows the threads of the lost items back to their sources through medical documents, personal letters, historic interviews, and analytical research of The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases From a State Hospital Attic. With vivid illustrations by Alayna Tinney, All My Bones Are Broken traces the contents of each suitcase and takes us on a journey into the minds of a minority so often silenced. By reimagining the lives of the patients at Willard, an exploration of the razor thin line between lucid health and insanity begins.
