Cultivating Mad Cow has been described as an 'insightful, richly diverse narrative which engages the reader into a deeper understanding of psychosis'. It is an autobiographical account spanning a nine month period in 2004 which took Kathryn from being a professional working in children and family social work to being laid in a hospital bed, near enough every bone broken, confused and frightened after jumping 85 feet from a car park in the centre of Sheffield. Kathryn takes the reader through a journey which involves a relationship with a telephone counsellor by the name of Barry White who happened to pick the phone up on a particular day she phoned to talk to someone about what was happening to her. With no one else to turn to, Barry becomes a central theme in her life and the story itself.
