The inside story of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine

Chosen as the Observer’s book of the week

'Urgent, compelling and lyrically, luminously beautiful . . . a brilliant, heart-rending read.' Psychologies Magazine Brown constellates the subjects that define her inside and out: a disabled and conspicuous body, a religious conversion, a missing twin, a life in poetry. As she does, she depicts vividly for us not only her own life but a striking array of sites and topics, among them Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the world's oldest anatomical theater, Eugenics, and Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. Throughout, Brown offers us the gift of her exquisite sentences, woven together in consideration, always, of what it means to be human: flawed, potent, feeling.
