Join writer, actor and broadcaster Rhik Samadder as he talks about his new book I Never Said I loved You, an important, deeply moving and darkly funny memoir.
I Never Said I Loved You is the story of Rhik Samadder’s lifelong battle with mental health and is set to join Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive and Bryony Gordon’s Mad Girl as a lead of the genre.
Cleverly structured around 10 topical and deeply personal ‘How to’ chapters (how to grieve, how to live, how to let go), it begins with a pivotal and unlikely backpacking trip with his aging mother for his 30th birthday – finally opening up about year’s of depression. Through this begins a journey of investigation, healing and recovery.
I Never Said I Loved You is the story of how Rhik learned to let go, and then keep going. With unique humour and honesty, he has created a powerfully rich, funny and poignant exploration of the light and dark in all of us.
