The Minds of Billy Milligan, by Daniel Keyes
I bet, everyone has read it already.
For those unlucky guys who haven't, here the link
To make a long story short, the book tells us a documented story of Billy Milligan, a person with a multiple personality disorder, who got acquitted of crimes thanks to the fact his lawyers were able to prove it was not Billy but his two alter egos who submitted rapes and robberies.
Thanks to Keyes, the phenomenon of multiple personality has become popular in pop culture: the movie
has been announced (DiCaprio is going to play all 24 personalities of Billy Milligan, by the way), infographics
describing Billy's core personalities have been designed, writers discuss ideas for storytelling where they could use MP to set new questions.
