Written at the age of 17, “The Madhouse of Love” is the story of a 12-year-old who is kept in a psychiatric unit for 2½ years in Scotland in the late 1960s due to a misunderstanding. During his stay in the hospital, he falls in love with a girl who is also a patient, but their relationship is put a stop to by the authorities, leading them both to contemplate suicide. Eventually, Tony manages to discharge himself by using a great deal of tact and persuasion but ends up homeless in London at the age of 16.



Peter G Mackie was born in Perth, Scotland in 1957 and spent his early teenage years in an adolescent psychiatric unit, an experience which he described in his short, autobiographical novel "The Madhouse of Love", written at the age of 17. This was followed by a volume of poetry and a collection of short writings. He has also recorded a CD of music "All Over the Shop" on piano and synthesiser, consisting of songs written in his youth, two improvised instrumental tracks and one classical piece. He now lives in Edinburgh, where he volunteers at a youth centre.
