Free read Asylum AUTHOR William B. Seabrook 107 In 1934 William Seabrook was one of the most famous journalists in the world He was also an alcoholic But there was no treatment for his disease So he checked himself into an insane asylum There from the perspective of a travel write. In F Scott Fitzgerald s book The Crack Up he mentions in passing the memoir of a man who had himself committed to an institution Both he and Fitzgerald had cracked under the same pressure or so Fitzgerald thought The man was William Seabrook a world famous travel writer from the Lost Generation and the book was Asylum In 1934 Seabrook knew he was slowly drinking himself to death and entered an insane asylum There from the perspective of a travel writer he described his own journey through this strange and foreign place Today you can t read a page in the book without seeing him bump unknowingly into the basic principles of 12 step groups On a regular basis he says things so clear so self aware that you re stunned an addict could have written it shocked that this book isn t a classic American textI read three of Seabrook s books back to back so I m unable to say where one stopped and another began But you find that the deep ceaseless fear that drove him to drink was that he d die a mediocre writer barely remembered Ultimately this is what happened It was this fear and anxiety that drove Seabrook around the world It s awful really because aside from the occasional strange phrase there isn t a word in his books that couldn t have been just as easily written today I mean the whole gonzo concept of Wolfe and Thompson was essentially done by Seabrook 30 years prior and in a bolder way He went to Africa while Thompson barely made it to Vegas He was a Hearst syndicate writer one of the earliest Americans to serve in the First World War a horse bandit in the Middle East the first Western writer to taste human flesh and describe it the first to use the word zombie in an English text Yet all his books are out of print and hard to find Two of my copies are first editions from 1931 and 1942What you ll notice in these books is how he s always asking why and what for Way too many memoirs are hampered by their own narcissism but Seabrook is honest and self critical Asylum is maybe the best book on addiction I ve ever read and it breaks your heart knowing that just a few decades later someone would have been able to help him Read it first and then try No Hiding Place An Autobiography If you re skeptical find the book review from Time Magazine in 1942 that talks about his lifelong fetish for women in chains I also read Jungle Ways which was a good end to the trilogy You may have a hard time finding them but try to pick them up from or a college library because they are awesome It s nice to have books in your library that few people have even heard of
