Brain on Fire is the story of how Susannah Cahalan, a happy and healthy twenty-four-year old, woke up in hospital one day with no memory of how she got there. In this exclusive conversation at Foyles with Simon Hattenstone from The Guardian, Susannah will discuss her terrifying descent into madness, her desperate hunt for explanation or cure, and her eventual diagnosis with a little-known and extremely rare autoimmune disease, anti-NMDA-receptor autoimmune encephalitis, a discovery which saved her life and those of many others.
