Ten Days in a Mad-House

Written by Nellie Bly | Narrated by Rebecca Gibel
In 1887, journalist Nellie Bly went undercover as a patient at America’s first municipal mental hospital. In this harrowing classic exposé, she reveals the nightmarish experience of the patients on Blackwell Island — from misdiagnoses and mistreatment to wrongfully admitted patients who found the facility almost impossible to escape.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

In 1887, Nellie Bly had herself committed to the notorious Blackwell’s Island insane asylum in New York City with the goal of discovering what life was like for its patients. While there, Bly experienced firsthand the shocking abuse and neglect of its inmates, from inedible food to horrifyingly unsanitary conditions. Ten Days in a Mad-House is Bly’s expose of the asylum. Written for Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World, Bly’s account chronicles her 10 days at Blackwell’s Island and, upon its publication, drew public attention to the abuse of the institutionalized and led to a grand jury investigation of the facility. This series of articles established Bly as a pioneering female journalist and remains a classic of investigative reporting.
