PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 2, 2012 - Just published: ‘Susan’s Brother’ by James Marinero is a true story about a neglected boy. Following a suicide attempt, he was committed to an adult mental ward at the age of 9 in 1957. Special Schools come into question – society has to house and educate even those who are severely damaged and a danger to the population at large. Does institutionalisation help them or harm them? Was the experimental schooling at Homer Lane’s ‘Little Commonwealth’ at Evershot in Dorset a basis for the arguably outlandish regime of Epping House Special School?

Positive outcomes are possible, but only in special circumstances. What led to the success of Susan’s Brother as an engineer given his background of five years in special schools which produced notorious serial killers such as Patrick Mackay?

In this heart-rending but uplifting stylised biography, Marinero leads the reader to consider these questions and the treatment of this boy, Susan’s Brother, in the light of today’s definition of child abuse and educational norms.

Review Copies are available to bona fide reviewers.

Available now at all good bookstores and online at Amazon (paperback and Kindle).
