Literature Matters: Writing and Frankness


Filed under: Non-fiction

Why do we read? Why do we write? What do we reveal when we do?

Why do we read? Why do we write? What do we reveal when we do? A writer (Deborah Levy), a psychotherapist (Adam Phillips) and a philosopher (Amia Srinivasan) discuss what we reveal about ourselves through literature and the difference, if any, between non-fiction, novels and the psychotherapist’s couch.  The conversation is chaired by writer and broadcaster Matthew Sweet.
