Jane Lapotaire
"Nearly dying was the easy part" - the words of actress Jane Lapotaire who suffered a brain haemorrhage three years ago. She was lucky to survive.

Jane joins Jenni to tell her about the stresses and strains of living day to day with a brain that sometimes feels as if it's 'outside of her body'.
'Time Out of Mind' by Jane Lapotaire, published today by Virago Press; ISBN: 1860499775
