Publisher's Summary

In 1887 Nellie Bly had herself committed to the notorious Blackwell's Island insane asylum in New York City with the goal of discovering what life was like for its patients. While there, Bly experienced firsthand the shocking abuse and neglect of its inmates, from inedible food to horrifyingly unsanitary conditions. Ten Days in a Mad-House is Bly's exposé of the asylum. Written for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, Bly's account chronicles her 10 days at Blackwell's Island and, upon its publication, drew public attention to the abuse of the institutionalized and led to a grand jury investigation of the facility. This series of articles established Bly as a pioneering female journalist and remains a classic of investigative reporting.

    Story
    "An interesting window into the past."

    I really enjoyed listening to this account of a mad house. it's a really interesting look into a present long gone. It has to be taken for what it is a journalist making a book from a column. But that is what makes it special. it's not trying to be anything more than it is. It's now a personal favorite.
