LILITH is a powerfully drawn portrait of innocence corrupted by evil—an evil so brilliant, so beautiful, so imaginatively conceived that even its violence and amorality have a fantastic splendor of their own. This is the evil of Lilith, a wildly deranged young woman who creates for herself a strange paradise of fantasy, poetry, and passion which she inhabits in preference to the real world. Her world has its own language, its own philosophy, its own music and art, all exquisitely constructed and richly sensual in their design. And it has its own religion, a religion which demands an insidious and dreadful form of human sacrifice.

First published in 1961, LILITH instantly became a classic of American literature, with over one million copies in print and a 1964 film adaptation of the same name starring Warren Beatty and Jean Seberg.

Found 1st printing of this brilliant work at a thrift store knowing nothing about it.  Having worked in behavioral health for many years in a job not far off from the narrator, I am amazed at it's accuracy.  And yet, he also captures the subtle, elusive, seductive way madness can effect the very ones trying to cure it.  This book should be required for all Who work in human service.
