Change your mind…

Hello, welcome.

My latest project is WHY DO I FEEL? a podcast exploring the emotions that make us. It has its own page on this website so do please check it out.

My most recent book is all about the strange and contested concepts of mental health and illness. It was a Sunday Times Book of the Year and longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize. I’d love for you to read it.

Take a look around this site to find out more about me and my writing, and please feel free to get in touch.

'A brilliant, beautiful and bold book. It is illuminating and empathetic and needs to be read by all'

Bryony Gordon

‘A compelling story of grief, madness and loss. Filer has an ear for the dark comedy of life, and Matthew is a charismatic lead character who draws you in even as his world falls apart’
