The Shaking Woman or A History of My Nerves

by Siri Hustvedt - £8.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780340998779 | ISBN 10: 0340998776

While speaking at a memorial event for her father, the novelist Siri Hustvedt suffered a violent seizure from the neck down. Was it triggered by nerves, emotion - or something else entirely?
 
In this profoundly thought-provoking and revealing book, Hustvedt takes the reader on her journey through psychiatry, philosophy, neuroscience and medical history in search of a diagnosis. Conveying the often frightening mysteries of illness, she illuminates the perenially mysterious connection between mind and body and what we mean by 'I'.
