Beth is jealous of the attention he pays to her. Locals smash windows in the house, protesting about having 'nutters' in the area. Zimmerman leaves, a new patient Laurence joins the group, and tensions become apparent within the 'Community'.
Mary appears naked, covered in her own faeces, and Eddie cleans her. When Eddie has to go away for three weeks, Mary pines for him and refuses to eat again. Three years later, Angie, a disturbed rich girl of 20, comes to the house, where Mary is now well enough to help her.

Her book caused some disapproval in my family but she stayed on good terms with everyone, even her own parents.
Some years later she lived with me for a while and I came to appreciate how much she felt Kingsley Hall had saved her. She had been given her wish to regress and start again, in fact encouraged to go mad like Francis Gillet was. I attended a performance of the David Edgar play by Glasgow University with her which was very moving.
After leaving Kingsley Hall she helped other people with mental problems as well as writing her book. The experiment worked with her but she was probably quite unique.
