1st September 2016: Dangerous Asylums: Rob Mimpriss in Conversation with Simon Thirsk (Part 1)

Dangerous Asylums is an anthology of short fiction based on historic patient records from Denbigh Mental Hospital, commissioned by Prof. David Healy and his colleagues at the North Wales Mental Health Research Project, and featuring contributions from some of the leading writers in Wales. In this recording by the BBC Listening Project (Colwyn Bay, 15th August 2016), I talk to one of these contributors, Simon Thirsk, about our shared experiences of the project, and about mental health, illness, and the asylum in Wales.

Dangerous Asylums

‘In this exemplary collaboration between medical science and imagination, lives preserved in official records, in the language and diagnoses of their times, are restored not just to light, but to humanity and equality. This anthology is a resurrection.’
