“Mental,” Part One, Recounted in Quotes

Welcome to an overview of “Mental,” my second novel, as so far exclusively published here at https://www.MarieKJohnston.com!

This section introduces the reader to identical twin sisters, Lilly and Lilly’s subject, Eve. We learn that Eve is in the middle of a nervous breakdown of seemingly unknown origins, which ostensibly began during her second year of teaching high school English, and which is tied to something, what she cannot recall, that her father did to her during their parents’ divorce when Eve and Lilly were seventeen.

By reading this section in full, which I believe I am about to let you do in a later post, you will (hopefully) come to understand what a nervous breakdown is actually like and of course, how the very beginning of Eve’s adult life is almost ruined by one.

Enjoy! I hope these art-quote pieces are as enjoyable to read as they were to create!

  1. Dear Marie,

    After reading the quotes from each of the three sections of your exquisitely beautiful, painful “Mental,” I must say you are a very gifted writer. If the world would be a different kind of place someday, I would love to have a signed copy of this novel.

    ❤️, a fan
