I was really lucky to read this book prior to release and I have to say, it’s genius! Like all of Devlin’s books, the humor will have your belly shaking with laughter.
The setting: The Transylvania Institute for the Terminally Insane (TITI; pronounced “Tie-Tie”), where patients are not treated to be cured, but are allowed to live out their delusions in relative comfort in a supportive environment.
The plot: A down-on-his-luck actor’s audition for a role to support one particularly peculiar patient plunges him pathologically into a nightmarish maelstrom of madness and mayhem.
The characters: A manic mix of patients and staff catapults the roller-coaster plot to its shocking, heart-stopping finale.
Adapted and updated from the hit 1974 stage comedy of the same title. (The print version includes photos from one of the original productions.)
