Hysteria Today – ‘This is an essential book for anyone interested in the ways we all struggle with language. Every writer in this dazzling, scholarly collection of essays has taught me something new about how hysteria continues to haunt the 21st century. Hysteria, like subjectivity, did not die in the 1890s. Hysteria is dead! Long live hysteria!’
- Deborah Levy, author of Hot Milk and Swimming Home (both shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize)
