Signatures of Misconduct: The Making of The Blackwood Bomber
Donatien Chamchawala, author
In April 2009, after a child triggered a tripwire in his back garden, Donatien Chamchawala was arrested and charged with possession of explosives. Sentenced to an indefinite period in a secure mental hospital, he would spend 7 years struggling to regain the freedom that appeared permanently lost to him. Learn how a mild-mannered vegan’s world collapsed as he gradually descended towards madness. Wrongfully portrayed as hateful and dangerous by the authorities, the diary entries you are about to read reveal the truth behind the headlines. Signatures of Misconduct is perhaps the greatest insight into the reasoning of a diagnosed schizophrenic. Painfully honest, witty and saddening, this is a book that uncovers the many deficiencies of the UK mental health system, which may never be solved. Donatien takes a journey from the depths of negativity to the shores of aspiration. Enter the mind of a creative thinker, an outlier described by some as bearing a quiet charm and unique presence. Enter the mind of the Blackwood Bomber.
