- Health, Psychology & Spirituality

In this panel, a human rights journalist and a novelist bring us directly into the experience of PTSD — McClelland via memoir, and Mazzucco through a story of a female veteran wounded in Afghanistan. How can literature capture PTSD? What are the limitations? What’s it like to write this kind of story?
