Emma Forrest, an English journalist, was 22 and living in America when she realised that her quirks had gone beyond eccentricity. Lonely, in a dangerous cycle of self-harm and damaging relationships, she found herself in the chair of a slim, balding, effortlessly optimistic psychiatrist - a man whose wisdom and humanity would wrench her from the vibrant and dangerous tide of herself, and help her to recover when she tried to end her life. But one day, when Emma called to make an appointment with her psychiatrist, she found no one there. He had died, shockingly, aged 53, leaving behind a young family. Processing the premature death of a man who'd become her anchor, she was adrift. And when her significant and all-consuming relationship also fell apart, she was forced to cling to the page for survival. A modern-day fairy tale of New York, Your Voice in My Head is a dazzling and devastating memoir, clear-eyed and shot through with wit.
