A Body Made of Glass

My next book is A Body Made of Glass: A History of Hypochondria. It will be published by Granta in the UK and Ecco Books in the US in 2024.

It’s a cultural, medical and personal history of hypochondria and health anxiety, covering everything from humorism and melancholy to internet self-diagnosis. You can read the full announcement in the Bookseller and Publisher’s Marketplace. If you’d like to keep up with the writing process, subscribe to my newsletter for occasional updates.

As I’m working on this project, I’m very interested in hearing from readers with personal experience of hypochondria and health anxiety disorders.
