In The Heartland,
Nathan Filer, a former mental health nurse, invites us to spend time in the company of some extraordinary people whose lives have been affected by this most strange of human conditions, and to discover their complex, surprising, painful, funny and ultimately relatable stories.
The Shock of the Fall was the debut that seemingly arrived from nowhere and ultimately sold half a million copies in the UK alone, bagging the Costa Book of the Year and establishing Nathan Filer as one of the decades most significant new voices. Now Filer considers psychiatry's traditional heartland of schizophrenia, challenging its orthodoxy with a mesmeric, important collage of essays and first-person encounters.
Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and vital evening of discussion.
