Editorial Reviews

Review

“Home Bodies exemplifies some of the best work in health humanities. Employing his fine eye as an English Studies scholar, James Krasner makes observations in matters of the body, health, medicine, and culture. His research is meticulous; his project marries the study of the body and the study of domestic space and offers an account of the embodied human experience within the materiality of a range of versions of home. Home Bodies is original and compelling.” —Judith Z. Segal, professor of English, University of British Columbia

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Krasner's book reimagines our experience in our homes and tackles some of the tough realities facing elderly people who wish to remain at home despite failing health, looks at alternative ways of thinking about home, and is in general, a beautiful example of medical humanities work at its most pragmatic and dynamic. His work does rely on a great deal of theory, however, he also inserts personal anecdotes and a wry sense of humor that make the book, even for less academic audiences, approachable. If you are interested in rethinking about how we interact with our homes in crisis, this is a great resource.
