Heart Shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize! (The Guardian)

“The £30,000 award is open to fiction and non-fiction, and aims to celebrate a book that best illuminates ‘the many ways that health, medicine and illness touch our lives’

The shortlist is completed by playwright Arnold Thomas Fanning’s memoir Mind on Fire, an ‘unflinching’ and ‘masterfully written’ account of the mania, psychosis and depression he experienced in his 20s, and cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar’s Heart, a book that explores the organ through medical research, history and personal stories. ‘The depth of his knowledge is remarkable, and the breadth of his compassion even more so,’ said Shafak.”
