"The Folded World tells the story of an idealistic young social worker drawn into the lives of his mentally ill clients. Charlie Shade was born into a quiet, prosperous life, but a sense of injustice dogs him. He feels destined to leave his life of "bread and laundry," and to work instead with people in crisis. On his way, he meets his kindred spirit in Alice, a young woman living helplessly by laws of childhood superstition. Charlie's empathy with his clients - troubled souls like Hal, the high school wrestling champion who undergoes a psychotic break, and Opal, a friendless young woman afraid of snow - is both admirable and reckless. A new husband and father, Charlie risks his own cherished domestic world to try and help Hal, Opal, and others move beyond their haunted inner worlds into the larger world of love and connection."--BOOK JACKET.
