Suspended in Darkness

My next book is Suspended in Darkness: A History of Hypochondria. It will be published by Granta 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.

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