Narratives of the body are versatile – and From the Body demonstrates this.

Here, there are confessions, recollections, and love letters, all dealing with topics as wide-reaching as eating disorders, disability, and gender dysphoria. In this collection of personal essays and creative nonfiction, its contributors have responded to food and the body in intimate but universal ways, sharing experiences that will resonate with readers.

Featuring the award-winning poet Andrew McMillan and dedicated mental health campaigner Cara Lisette, From the Body is a tender and honest discussion of how we feed and fuel our bodies – and how we may, in time, come to treat them a little kinder.
