Happy Publication Day! Blade in the Shadow by Jillian Halket

A coming-of-age memoir about Harm OCD.

Getting diagnosed late in life, the memoir follows Halket from her early teens to early twenties and into recovery. It’s a new look at living with illness as part of normality.

“A dark, rich account of how it feels to live with OCD, glimmering with light and hope. A bold pursuit of a life that is more than just a way to survive.” — Jessica Andrews, author of Saltwater (Portico Prize 2020)

​”We need more voices like Jillian Halket’s in conversations around mental health in Scotland.” — Elsa Maishman, The Scotsman

​“a raw and gripping account of the unseen pain and terror that can be part of life with OCD. This book is vivid, lyrical and at times startlingly honest… The writing is fresh, frank and fearless and I highly recommend it.” — Catherine Simpson, author of TrueStory
