Carla by Mark Barry

A mental patient (Jonathan Dexter), with an ongoing history of violence and suffering an extreme form of Borderline Personality Disorder, is discharged into the community after three years in a private asylum. In a ...
prosperous English town, he meets and falls in love with Carla, a beautiful, naive young wildlife conservation student working behind the bar of an old tavern.

The two develop a relationship - a good one, a warm one, one with a future, until things start to go badly wrong.

A dark, brooding romance novel based loosely in the Minster town of Southwell in Nottinghamshire, readers interested in crime, psychology, mental health, personality disorders and the ongoing relationship between men and women will enjoy this book.

Carla is written from the perspective of the mental patient, in the style of fifties legend Jim Thompson (to whom this is a homage), and as such, it offers a hard core, unflinching, unyielding, no holds barred innerscape of someone suffering serious mental health problems including Borderline Personality Disorder.
