A Still Life

Bedside Reading

Jan 24 2023 • 34 mins

I'm so delighted that Kathleen Wenaden asked to come and talk about the beautiful, gentle evocative book with me because this has been one of my reading highlights in the past few weeks.

This is a wonderful gentle record of a small world, centred around a small terraced house in the West Midlands and the diary of a year in the life of an invisible illness.

The Guardian review of this book hints just slightly at the possibilities within https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/feb/27/a-still-life-by-josie-george-review-memoir-of-a-mystery-illness.

Kathleen and I talk about the fallacy of binary illness-wellness which made us reflect on another book Recovery by Gavin Francis
