A Secret Madness: The Story of a Marriage by Elaine Bass

In post-war London two girls are relieved to find husbands. One lands the 1950s dream of wealth and security. The other, Elaine, endures 14 years married to a man with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. At first Elaine finds Geralds activities curious but manageable. But he grows increasingly withdrawn, his mania grows and his actions obscure, and he even becomes violent. The birth of their daughter heralds a complete breakdown andnbsp;5 years of silence, fear, and despair. With startling honesty and great eloquence, Bass describes their poverty, her loneliness, fears for her child, finding comfort in an affair with the village doctor, and how the marriage finally ended.
