A Lone Walk by Gul Y. Davis

Buy Now Price £6.99

Wil’s break for freedom from a brutal psychiatric regime confronts him with unexpected choices. Who can he trust? An alluring voice from his childhood dreams? Or a big-hearted nurse who reassures him: ‘Not all of these places are the same’?

Gul Y. Davis’ nightmarish vision is balanced by wit, tenderness and a passionate sense of humanity.

Gul Davis’s moving tale of an innocent betrayed, abused and tipped headlong into the corrupting world of psychiatric care is bleak, fierce and powerful

Paul Wilson

Gul Davis is a real writer. His turn of phrase is striking and his control of effects remarkably assured. This novella encloses the reader in a tight grip from the beginning, refusing to let him go until he’s listened. It’s strange to have entered someone’s head, and their skin, to this extent

Margaret Forster

I have nowhere read a description of such a life more convincing and more readable

Sir Stephen Tumim
