With a surprisingly page-turning storyline...its an entertaining read, a major accomplishment Open Salon. Book details: In 2007, Oregon demolished the infamous state mental hospital where One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was filmed. Today, many new patients are placed in privately-run group homes scattered throughout residential neighborhoods.

Dinner for Rashid: My Too-Short Stint as a Mental Health Caregiver is acclaimed author Peter Fenton’s account of his emotionally-charged experience at one such group home nestled in a quiet Oregon neighborhood. Peter spent four harrowing months there, dispensing meds, cooking meals and matching wits with five surprisingly engaging, yet volatile male patients. The five guys: two sex offenders- a fire starter, a selective mute, and most captivating of all, Rashid, a multiracial paranoid schizophrenic with manic-depressive disorder. A sweetly naïve hulk with a talent for pithy, tweet-like observations, Rashid can also explode into sudden, scary violence over a single wrong word or tepid glass of water.

Dinner for Rashid is a gripping, darkly humorous all-too-true story.
