Fridays with my Folks, Unlike the Heart and Imperfect are three memoirs that bring extensive research to bear on the authors’ own life experiences. Amal Awad, Nicola Redhouse and Lee Kofman talk to Jane McCredie about how they drew from a wider field of research in order to reflect on their own circumstances.
Kofman’s Imperfect is a deeply personal cultural critique of physical imperfection and how our bodies shape the people we become.Awad looks at ageing and illness in Australian Society through the lens of her father’s illness in Fridays with my Folks. In Unlike the Heart, Redhouse penetrates contemporary neuroscience and psychoanalytic theories to shed light on her struggle with post-natal anxiety.
