Paperback, 03/05/2018, £12.99
A love story. A tragedy. An extraordinary journey to the heart of the human soul. For Londoners Jack and Alice Mann, moving to the coast is a dream come true, but when comedian Jack is struck down by a mysterious illness, a Kafkaesque nightmare unfolds. As the Manns navigate the maze of a healthcare system in crisis, humour turns to despair. With the clock ticking they must find their own answers, and brace themselves for the biggest fight of their lives... ?Inspired by true events, Anatomised cuts through flesh and bone, diving deep into the heart and soul of Lyme disease, one of the fastest-spreading tick-borne illnesses in the world: the controversies, the conspiracies and ultimately, the tragic human cost. ?From life-changing symptoms to the terror of misdiagnoses, from conflicts over treatment to the psychological fallout of abandonment, one thing seems certain: once bitten, you might die… Everyone has their tipping point. What’s yours..?
