Claire Phillips Listed “#1 Must Read” on This Book That Book

Claire Phillips was recently interviewed by This Book That Book blog about “the process of writing such a personal memoir and the need for non-restitutive mental health stories.”

Phillips’ memoir A Room with a Darker View, praised as “a deeply personal and affecting story,” is said by the author to be “not just an illness narrative but also a bildungsroman that reflects the shadow side of a mother-daughter relationship constrained by the expectations of a patriarchal society, in which the ambitions of male family members come first, even before health.”
