A remarkable collection of poetry, prose, song-lyrics and personal diary entries by acclaimed singer-songwriter Emily Maguire as an account of her experiences of dealing with bipolar disorder. www.emilymaguire.com
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Emily Maguire tells for the very first time the real story behind her songs… her journeys into psychosis and depression and the hope and poetic beauty that emerge from the other side. Based on the verses of her song 'Start Over Again' (from her third album 'Believer'), this selection of Emily's poetry, prose, song lyrics and personal diary entries offers a rare and unique insight into the creativity of a manic depressive mind. www.emilymaguire.com
