Writers are almost by definition outliers – unusual people.  They see the world a little differently, and their work is by its nature solitary and isolating. Not surprising, then, to find that many writers suffer from something that’s still stigmatised by society: loneliness.

Tonight’s guest is bestselling author Emily White.  “Somewhere in the midst of all this scribbling”, she says, “my loneliness became overwhelming, and I realized that I needed to be writing about my own isolation. Once I made the decision to document my loneliness, my life completely changed…I devoted myself to the full-time study of loneliness.”

Murakami once wondered, “was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?” Many writers will be able to understand that sentiment.  Tonight’s show sheds some light on this important topic – and offers hope, too.

Presented by Peter Cox, Dave Bartram and Ali Gardner.
