No more than eeny, meeny, miney, mo and who we were supposed to catch by the toe.An unfortunate moniker, but one legitimately derived from the original name of the place—the Hospital for Mental and Nervous Diseases—when it opened in 1854. Not until 1972 would it be renamed after the river that runs by it. But in Mooney’s world, which revolved mostly in and around the asylum’s drab, depressing confines in the mid-1970s, it was colloquially the Mental, just as its largely despondent inhabitants were the mental patients.For further information, please call Flanker Press at (709) 739-4477 ext # 22 (1-866-739-4420) or visit the Flanker Press website at www.flankerpress.com
