Extrait

I was looking for weekend work, and though it was a Saturday job at a hairdresser’s I was after, somewhere in my teenage mind I thought that Ophelia might need a handmaiden. So, every day after school, before my mum got home, I would cycle to the Tate Gallery to visit
Millais’ muse.
   I didn’t want a Saturday job at a hairdresser and bike riding was not my forte, but I was conscious that I was a thirteen-year-old and thirteen-year-olds ride bikes for fun and wash hair for tip money. Later I would understand that disconnect: “This is how and what I am supposed to want, and so I will try.”
   Approaching the Tate, I knew what was coming. I could see Ophelia’s Titian hair, her white body floating down the river, the flowers around her. Sometimes, when I got there, she was dead. Other times she was still dying and could be saved by someone on the riverbank I’d never
seen before. Someone Millais had sketched and then painted over, under the pigment, taking shallow breaths so as not to be seen—a man who’d let her act it out, but who wouldn’t let her drown.
   Though I’d never had sex, there were days when Ophelia seemed to be caught in a sexual act, her arms reached above her, her mouth open, beneath an invisible lover. A long time later—after I’d been in love—I knew that she could not let go on the banks as she drifted by. The flowers beg her stay in the moment. His scent keeps her locked in the past. Those afternoons, the Tate was populated by a combination of the brightly patterned elderly and young, hip gallery patrons in black (the former keeping out of the rain.The latter longing for rain to get caught
in).There was always at least one pickup going on. But mainly, on the leather banquette, in the center of the grand room, I’d sit in front of Millais’ painting, eating a secret bag of crisps, and cry. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Revue de presse

"Emma Forrest is as hilarious as she is wise. And did I mention generous? Unlike most memoirs this is not merely a song of oneself, but a debt of gratitude repaid to an incredible man. Your Voice in My Head is touching, funny and very real."
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story

"There is a playful beauty to Emma Forrest's voice. Though her memoir is a portrait of a badly sprained soul, Your Voice in my Head is, at its heart, an honest love letter to life."
—Billie Livingston, author of Greedy Little Eyes

"Emma Forrest is an incredibly gifted writer, who crafted the living daylights out of every sentence in this unforgettable memoir. I can't remember the last time I ever read such a blistering, transfixing story of obsession, heartbreak and slow, stubborn healing."
—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Marketed as something totally different than it was 19 février 2014
Par Casey - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book really aggravated me. It was presented as a young woman's struggle with mental illness and a tribute to her psychiatrist and it's actually a love letter to Colin Farrell and making sure the world knows she had a relationship with him. It was horribly irresponsible on her part. What about young girls struggling with mental issues who buy this thinking they will find some kind of comfort in it, just to find a couple hundred pages of "I slept with Colin Farrell'?""He loved me, really, he did!!"

I'm so sorry I spent a dime on this and will never read another book of hers again. I also hope she realizes, she is still mentally ill and needs serious help. Amazed that this even got published.

This book is well-written, feels true and doesn't strain to make its narrator lovable or even all that sympathetic as she examines some harrowing years. (I found her to be both, regardless.) The parallel stories of two devastating losses are skillfully structured and paced, if not necessarily in ideal balance: the psychiatric narrative (serious issues, life-saving analyst) feels incomplete, given its complexity, while the romantic drama might be a tad over-examined, given its relative lack of same. To be fair, it was hard not to imagine an editor standing over the author's shoulder, nudging the love affair with (you might as well know) Colin Farrell into the spotlight. I did reflect, after finishing the book, on all parts of the story and how the pieces fit -- if this can be said kindly of such sad material, it left a satisfying afterglow. That's really all I ask of a memoir -- that the writing is engaging; the narrative voice unguarded, intelligent, and humane; and the story compelling enough to make me ponder it for a while after reading the last page.

You're busy. You want to read something you are going to appreciate and/or enjoy. This book is probably (or maybe hopefully, if you have any taste whatsoever) not for you.

Emma Forrest is an uneven writer at best; midway through the book it's barely about her relationship with her doctor anymore. That wouldn't be such an issue, if that's not how this book is sold to potential readers. What I really did not like about this book, though, is how completely privileged and clueless about it Emma Forrest seems; she comes from a well off family who helps her out with her doctor bills; she lives in an apartment in NYC and attends fun parties you and I could never get invited to, she dates a celebrity ("Gypsy Husband" is Colin Farrell, fyi. Why she bothers to conceal this fact is a mystery. A quick Google search was all it took to reveal that info). I just...I couldn't feel for her. Emma Forrest's job here was to make me care about her. I didn't.

If you are going to purchase this book anyway, it is at least any easy read. Nothing challenging here, few brain cells required. I read it in a couple of hours on a weekend. If I recommended this book, it would be to someone more liberal than I am, and then only as a beach read.

I purchased this book after reading an outstanding review of it, but found myself disappointed, as it fell short of my expectations. I can't quite put my finger on what I found wrong about this book, but something wasn't quite right. I found it to be a little bit rambling as well. It only took me a few hours to read and for $10 I was really hoping it would last a few days at least. All in all, not that bad, but nothing special. Definitely won't be re-reading.
