About the Author
Sonoma Valley writer Ed Davis lives a short distance from Jack London's famous Beauty Ranch and from the sprawling institution that is the setting for his latest story. During the summer of 1970, when he was just seventeen, Davis enrolled in the psychiatric technician training program at Sonoma State Hospital in Eldridge, California. Now, over forty years after completing his training, Davis has penned a fictionalized account of his experiences. In All Things offers a candid perspective on the way things used to be inside the wards and behind the closed doors of US mental institutions.
Davis is also the author of Road Stories, a collection of travel essays, and he is currently putting the finishing touches on The Last Professional, a semi-autobiographical hobo novel, which will be available by the end of 2015.
