Author Andrea Kayne Kaufman discusses her novel Oxford Messed Up and the portrayal of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Oxford Messed Up transports readers on a meaningful and emotional journey, where the academic world of Oxford is a backdrop for true learning, self-discovery, and transcendent love. Because of Andrea's professional expertise and personal experience, it is one of the first novels to present the inner workings and treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder accurately. The novel is research-based and has been vetted by OCD experts. Most depictions in fiction, on television, and in movies focus on OCD's eccentric behavior and ignore the internal torture.
