About the Book

What it’s like to live in a world where shaking a stranger’s hand, catching a taxi or touching a door handle are fraught with fear … This beautifully written memoir charts the author’s breakdown after migrating from New Zealand to England, when homesickness and career burn-out develop into depression, contamination phobia and OCD.
