In this compelling novel, Jay Chirino channels his own struggles with depression and addiction, creating a universal story that is painfully relatable for those with similar issues, and eye-opening for the ones that haven’t dealt with the challenges of mental illness.

After leaving behind a trail of drug-addled destruction, Jay finds himself confined to the walls of a psychiatric hospital. He is now compelled to confront his actions, his issues, and the past that led him to such downhill spiral. But what surprisingly affects him most are the people that he becomes surrounded by; people with considerable deficiencies that will shed some light on the things that truly matter in life.

“The Flawed Ones” is a thorough examination of the struggles of mental illness, depression, addiction, and the effects they have on the human condition. Most importantly, it proves that physical and mental shortcomings do not necessarily define who we truly are inside- that the heart is, in fact, untouched by our “flaws”, and that love will always prevail above all.



Whether or not we have gone through similar struggles, this read will give insight into the human condition, that which is common to us all. With Jay’s empathy and candor, not to mention his poetic turns of phrase, I am inspired to mold beauty out of tragedy , watch sunsets, and never give up. – Mari Carlson  (Mari’s Book Reviews)

The Flawed Ones by Jay Chirino is an amazing personal story that takes your breath away. – Andrew Michaelides (Thirsty for Health)

 The beauty of this book lies in the fact that it not only concentrates on the mental illness but it also tells us about what lies beyond the dark face of the illness itself. This book is a highly compelling and a very intelligent book. – Heena (The Reading Bud)

The admission to the hospital, 1:1 interviews with a doctor, and the embarrassing attempts to share something to a larger group up to the rehab tips and bid farewells to fellow patients before leaving form an impressive narrative – Henk-Jan van der Klis

The Flawed Ones by Jay Chirino is a truly insightful book that explores the personal impact of a mental illness on the authors own life. The author draws upon personal experiences in an intelligent way, that allows readers to relate to his personal story in many ways. – Hinesh Nathwani
