The Front List: Matt Haig in conversation with Chitra Ramaswamy

Through his memoir and fiction, Matt Haig has changed the way we talk about mental health.  

He is one of the most empathetic writers of our time, and in Reasons to Stay Alive, opened the door to his own battles with anxiety and depression, bringing millions of readers with him on a deeply personal journey.  

He is also one of our most popular novelists, selling more than 9 million copies of The Midnight Library and delighting readers worldwide with his insight and compassion.  

Matt presents his new novel, The Life Impossible, in this very special event as part of our key festival strand, How to Live a Meaningful Life. In conversation with award-winning writer Chitra Ramaswamy, he shares his exhilarating new story of resilience and renewal. 

Copies of Matt Haig’s new book The Life Impossible are available to purchase with your ticket (£20.00 RRP - £18.00 when purchased with a ticket). Pre-purchased books can be picked up at the time of the event. There will be a signing with Matt Haig after the event.

Please note this event takes place at McEwan Hall, Teviot Pl, Edinburgh EH8 9AG. The Front List is presented in partnership with Underbelly.
