Inside My Head

The cleverly constructed narrative consists of three points of view: of Gary, constantly victimised by the school bully in a nasty, name-calling and vindictive way; the bully's friend, David and a new girl to the school, Zoë. All viewpoints are revealing. Gary reveals the painful and often unsuccessful attempts by a young man to control his anger under great provocation - and his inability to communicate. David is someone who is uncomfortable with the bullying but doesn't dare to do anything about it - until the end. Zoë is a young woman who can see Gary through different eyes and is independent, freethinking and brave. Also featured are rampaging tractors, shotguns and cheese puffs.

Your Voice in My Head

Emma Forrest, an English journalist, was twenty-two 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 and effortlessly optimistic psychiatrist - a man whose wisdom and humanity would wrench her from the vibrant and dangerous tide of herself, and who would help her to recover when she tried to end her life. Emma's loving and supportive family circled around her in panic. She was on the brink of drowning. But she was also still working, still exploring, still writing, and she had also fallen deeply in love. One day, when Emma called to make an appointment with her psychiatrist, she found no one there. He had died, shockingly, at the age of fifty-three, leaving behind a young family. Processing the premature death of a man who'd become her anchor after she'd turned up on his doorstep, 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. In a voice unlike any other, Emma Forrest explores breakdown and mania, but also the beauty of love - and the heartbreak of loss.

I See Movies in My Head

Author Phillip Reisner has been seeing movies and writing poetry in his head his entire life, from his childhood years on a midwestern farm to his first venture out in the world as an adult. He learned efficiency of thought, action, and description from his father, who was a man of few words. His poetry collection, I See Movies in My Head takes place over a period of twenty years, beginning before Phillip gained self-awareness and coming up to a point of true-life realization. Phillip remembers his life experiences through movies in his head and poetically describes his personal history of growing up. His innocence is pure early in his life, but living gradually chips away with personal awareness and worldliness. Concise and to the point, the free-verse poems of I See Movies in My Head seek to remind us that simplicity teaches while complexity awaits understanding. I wish I could go back in time with more than organic films in my head, and feel sweet, special and innocent again. I wish I could be six years old again, and ignorantly unique without worldly knowledge to clutter my heart, mind, and soul.
