Fear

"The Fear is a finely tuned, fascinating interrogation of an emotion that hijacks us all. Both intimate and psychologically rigorous, it pushes the bounds of memoir into intellectual territory." "Made up of equal parts pain, intimacy, desolation and tenderness, The Fear extracts beauty and meaning from a reckoning with great private darkness." "The Fear considers how trauma manifests in ways that seem too powerful to tolerate... A brilliant look at the maze of personal history and how the wounds we carry will continue to make their journey through us, one way or another." "The Fear is a bold, beautiful and brave book; in it's form, in the lyricism of its style and in the intensity of its interrogations. At the level of intellectual curiosity, psychological honesty and political urgency it is a text of staggering depth and variety." "Intellectually vivifying and deeply moving, The Fear is a dazzling memoir that dances between the cerebral and the tender."

A philosophical memoir about the deepest and most primal of human emotions, how it controls us all, and how we try to control one another when the stakes are so high.

The Fear is a book about what scares us the most, how we live with these threats, and the emotional turmoil they inspire. Les mer

A philosophical memoir about the deepest and most primal of human emotions, how it controls us all, and how we try to control one another when the stakes are so high.

The Fear is a book about what scares us the most, how we live with these threats, and the emotional turmoil they inspire.

From gas-lighting to terrorism, and from scapegoating to psychoanalysis, The Fear stares deep into the abyss, searching for the monsters, horrors and spectres that destabilise and haunt us, and finding out what these fears-and how we respond to them-shape us as people and societies.

The Fear is a personal and critical exploration of fear and its impact in public and private lives, revealing how our cultural landscape informs and even justifies the way we relate to one another, and how it can set us free. Combining memoir with philosophical reflection on terrorism, psychology, relationships and culture, The Fear is a multi-faceted and poetic response to a subject that plagues us all.
