review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Emma Forrest characters Your Voice in My Head 100 Ity A modern day fairy tale of New York Your Voice in My Head is a dazzling and devastating memoir clear eyed and shot through wit. This is one case where I wish we could give ratings in half star increments three stars is too much two too little I m attracted to memoirs I m intrigued by mental illness it s debilitation and it s manifestation namely addiction In the case of this book said addiction is self injury and bulimia It seems Emma s to call her the author is too academic Ms Forrest too austere initial intention is to chronicle her battle with these compulsions along with a touching homage to her late therapist Dr R to whom she gives almost exclusive credit for helping her conuer her mania Got it Ready for it Go I will admit roughly the first half of the book had me hooked Though it seems many other readers were not enad with Emma s writing style I liked it as a whole I found it casual enough to invite but not insult while many passages wooed me with voice and language complex enough to impress but not patronize In terms of a writing opinion I enjoyed Emma s tone and would read of her work However the content uickly became an issue While I can appreciate the tragedy of loving losing who can t that s not why this book piued my interest And while I m as interested in celebrity encounters as the next person I uickly sour from namedropping Combine the two and you have a great majority of this memoir brief ineffectual exchanges with local actors and musicians and a tumultuous but tiresome love affair with a dashing surreptitiously nicknamed actor I was hoping for a dissection of depression or of cutting or of bulimia or of mania I was hoping for an overview of therapy or an analysis of Emma s specific relationship to Dr R I even hoped there might be a glimpses on writing itself it s involvement with depression These components were depressingly absent Ultimately I was compelled by her struggles but uickly alienated by the stories she chose to tell Her bipolar disorder never throws her writing or success into uestion by her account she remains wildly successful throughout the majority of the book Her cutting is stark and severe but she never discusses how it helps her or why it is her recourse similarly her bulimia uietly fades into nothingness What I DID learn however is that Colin Farrell text messages a lot may or may not have some neurosis of his own and at one point purchased a cute baby coat for a baby that didn t yet exist This is a book about a woman s struggles and while she s absolutely free to write about whatever she wishes I almost feel manipulated as if she used her mania as a cloak in order to pen a kiss and tell

review Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Emma Forrest characters Your Voice in My Head 100 Emma Forrest an English journalist was twenty two and living in America when she realised that her uirks had gone beyond eccentric. Narcissist using eating disorders self harming and celebrity chasing to get her fill of attentionThis is a very disturbing book and I actually regret reading it The fact that it is a memoir made me want to feel sympathy for the author I wanted to like her and commiserate with her issues But Emma Forrest is so self centred so absorbed by her own looks and her own drama that it is literally impossible to feel anything but disgust The way she describes bulimia is almost a caricature of a narcissist s need to show off rather than an authentic account of what goes on in a person who actually suffers from the severe anxiety and self loathing that comes from dealing with that disorder And when she cuts herself it always is on full display bloody and obvious between namedropping all the celebrities she meets and engages with to boost her confidence The memoir could have been written in three sentencesI engage in self harming behaviour partly because I am suffering and partly because it feeds my sense of importanceI had a shrink who died and I felt betrayed he didn t tell me that he had terminal cancerI dated a famous movie star and that is something everybody in the whole world should know because it defines my whole universe Famous by proxyDon t read this if you have any firsthand experience of the disorders she mentions it will give you a very lopsided idea of what is going on and why and you might feel than slightly nauseousDon t read this if you are interested in a writing style that is coherent and makes sense and follows some kind of inner logicRead this if you enjoy reading on the maturity level of a 15 year old girl s diary as written by a grownup woman of 30Read this if you think it is amazing that Emma Forrest interviewed Brad Pitt talked to Susan Sarandon lived in a house that Heath Ledger had inhabited before her and of course that she dated Colin Farrell for a year and an unnamed most important playwright of our times as well
