A surprisingly charming book which I am so happy to have stumbled across in the library's collection of e-books. Whilst studying art in England, Emily Carr was sent off to an English countryside sanatorium for a year. Despite not having tuberculosis, she seemed to have no choice in the matter. Perhaps because she was too young to speak up for herself. She kept a journal, incorporating the quirks and oddities of her surroundings and fellow inmates--illustrated of course, with sketches of birds, ducks, frogs, fellow patients, and, the doctors and nurses who were her keepers. The book is short and sweet. Highly recommended.
