About the Author
Aimee Inomata is a writer, researcher and sometime academic with a PhD in Literature and Philosophy. Her doctoral thesis was the result of attending a seminar at Sydney University in which the question “why study literature?” along with the subtext “given it appears to offer little in the way of financial advantage” was the topic. Literature and philosophy, she realised, provided her with opportunities for investigation regarding what it might mean to lead an authentic life. On returning from Sydney, Aimee spent the following six years teaching and lecturing at the University of Auckland on a wide variety of courses ranging from Writing Studies to Shakespeare, Critical and Cultural Studies and the Modern Novel before leaving to research and write The Special Patient. She has now spent well over 10,000 hours researching mental health, psychiatry, psychology, pharmacology and neuro-almosteverything. She continues to use her training in both philosophy and literature to critically analyse the underlying rhetoric of almost everything.
