Emma Forrest

Listen to Emma Forrest

British writer Emma Forrest discusses her memoir of her struggle with mental illness, Your Voice in my Head — as well as the book’s narrative structure and the response it’s received from critics and fellow patients of its central character, ‘Dr R’.

She reflects on the differing way the book has been received from her previous works of fiction, and considers the process of promoting such a candid work.

Emma Forrest visited Melbourne following her appearance at the Sydney Writers' Festival.
