In The Ha-Ha a young woman experiences a breakdown following the death of her mother, and she is hospitalised in an institution where electroshock therapy and lobotomies are commonplace treatments. When she falls in love with a fellow patient on the banks of the ha-ha, she decides to seize control of her own recovery. This is a moving and powerful account of mental illness, and this critically-acclaimed debut novel by Jennifer Dawson was based partly on her own experiences.
