The first story in my book “The Mansion”

The first story in my book “The Mansion” is appropriately called “the Mansion” and is about a mental hospital with many characters who suffer from grandiose delusions. The hospital is a society, with a political leader, as well as people controlling it(the Doctors), and people of different outlooks. The story begins with a boy who thinks hes an astronaut who believes there is life at the top of the hospital. He is shown a video about the space program, which leads to a debate and argument about the nature of morals and whether the society in the hospital is moral and takes care of the sick. Whether you agree with the book’s conclusions, the book will invite you to look at the nature of morals and what is humane, just and merciful, in a new way.
