INTERVIEW by Caroline Stockford

NWR Issue 104

IN BRIEF Interview with Rob Mimpriss

‘Many of [Denbigh Asylum’s] patients came from the workhouse, or were sent there on their release, like Siôn in Simon Thirsk’s story, the first of the stories extracted, abandoned by his more successful brother. Their previous lives are marred by war, as in Gee and David Williams’ story, or by disease, as in Carys Bray’s.'

Rob Mimpriss presents a north Walian fiction showcase in stories inspired by one hundred years of records at Denbigh Asylum here, in NWR 104. In the clip below, Rob also talks about the North Wales Mental Health Project and reads from his story, ‘Believer, 1905’.
