It's 1972 in Canberra. Michael Dransfield is being treated for a drug addiction; Paula Keogh is delusional and grief-stricken. They meet in a psychiatric unit of the Canberra Hospital and instantly fall in love. Paula recovers a self that she thought was lost; Michael, a radical poet, is caught up in a rush of creative energy and writes poems that become The Second Month of Spring. Together, they plan for 'a wedding, marriage, kids - the whole trip'. But outside the hospital walls, madness, grief and drugs challenge their luminous dream. Can their love survive The Green Bell is a lyrical and profoundly moving story about love and madness. It explores the ways that extreme experience can change us expose our terrors and open us to ecstasy for the sake of a truer life, a reconciliation with who we are. Ultimately, the memoir reveals itself to be a hymn to life. A requiem for lost friends. A coming of age story that takes a lifetime.
