Jeff Holt is a licensed professional counselor who lives in Plano, TX with his wife, Sarena, and their lovely twin daughters, Julia and Allison, who are almost a year old.

A Mind Apart: Poems of Melancholy, Madness, and Addiction

"Much madness is divinest sense," wrote Emily Dickinson, "And much sense the starkest madness." The idea that poetry and madness are deeply intertwined, and that madness sometimes leads to the most divine poetry, has been with us since antiquity. In his critical and clinical introduction to this splendid anthology--the first of its kind--psychiatrist and poet Mark S. Bauer considers mental disorders from multiple perspectives and challenges us to broaden our outlook.
