Blurb of Mad in St Mungo's, by GIlderoy Lockhart.
We all know greatness is not born, it is made out of hardship. When you think of great wizards, you probably think of Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin Third Class, Dark Force Defense League honorary member, and five-time winner of Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile Award. If you don't, then this book is why you should.
Mad in St Mungo's is Gilderoy Lockhart's heartwrenching tale after his travels. For Lockhart's most interesting and trying times were not when he was travelling around the world, helping and inventing, but begin at his appointment as Professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.
Starting from his arrival at the infamous school, Mad in St Mungo's documents Lockhart's gripping and heart-felt journey: boldly protecting students from horrors inside and outside of the castle, the terrifying account of a student's ferocious Memory Charm attack, and the long, perilous journey from madness to regain his memories and his sense of self.
In his own words, Gilderoy Lockhart guides us through his heartbreaking story of struggle, internal battles, and small but hard-won victories. Mad in St Mungo's is set to be his next best-seller, and no longer because of his award-winning grin. This tale will change everything you know about your favourite hero, even the colour lilac.
Once, Gilderoy Lockhart quietly saved the world. Now, he must save himself.
