Description: Between 1982 and 1989 Pelafina Lievre sent her son, Johnny Truant, a series of letters from The Three Attic Whalestoe Institute, a psychiatric hospital in Ohio where she spent the final years of her life. Beautiful, heartfelt, and poetic, these letters bring to light the powerful and deeply influential relationship between a brilliant though mentally ill mother and her precocious, gifted young son. Her mental deterioration is tragic, but the love she expresses throughout is unwavering and profound.

Originally contained in the monumental House of Leaves, this correspondence stands alone as a moving portrait of mother and son. Now, for the first time, it is presented on its own in one elegant volume, along with additional, previously unavailable material.
