"I picked up The Hospital Always Wins and couldn't put it down. Issa Ibrahim writes with remarkable clarity and an artist's skill for evoking place and time and the inner landscape of his own mind." --Robert Whitaker, author of Anatomy of an Epidemic
"A beautifully written masterpiece of shocking truths, powerful drama, and gripping storytelling. It pulled me down the rabbit hole and spit me out under a deadly cold light, deftly transformed to an unexpected warmth by the remarkable compassion of the author. I couldn't put it down until the truly shocking finish." --Xavier Amador, author of I Am Not Sick, I Don't Need Help!
"Artist Ibrahim's desperate memoir feels as though it was carved from his heart." --Booklist
"Searing" and "poignant." --O, the Oprah Magazine
"Insightful, troubling, touching, poetic, and at times humorous, this book will please readers of offbeat biographies." --Library Journal
