Sitting down in conversation with ABC Radio’s presenter Myf Warhurst, ARIA Awardwinning singer and actress Clare Bowditch breaks-down her inner critic and discusses her no-holds-barred memoir, Your Own Kind of Girl.

“This is the story I promised myself, aged twenty-one, that I would one day be brave enough – and well enough – to write.” – Clare Bowditch

Clare Bowditch has always had a knack for telling stories. Through her music and performing, this beloved Australian artist has touched hundreds of thousands of lives. But what of the stories she used to tell herself? That ‘real life’ only begins once you’re thin or beautiful, that good things only happen to other people.

Your Own Kind of Girl reveals a childhood punctuated by grief, anxiety and compulsion and tells how these forces shaped Clare’s life for better and for worse. This is a heart-breaking, wise and at times playful memoir. Clare’s own story told raw and as it happened. A reminder that even on the darkest of nights, victory is closer than it seems.

Writers+Ideas is supported by EY and O’Neill Architecture.
