Revue de presse :

"Biss advocates eloquently for childhood immunization, making her case as an anxious new mother intent on protecting her son - and understanding the consequences. Her exploration is both historical and emotional... Biss frankly and optimistically looks at our 'unkempt' world and our shared mission to protect one another." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "A thoughtful, withering critique [of] more recent fears of vaccines... [Biss] accommodates the many sides of the topic but arrives at a clear point of view: Vaccinate." - Kirkus, starred review "[A] far-reaching and unusual investigation into immunity... Artfully mixing motherhood, myth, maladies, and metaphors into her presentation, Biss transcends medical science and trepidation." - Booklist, starred review "As Eula Biss makes clear in this well-written journey through history, medicine, and her own experience as a mother, one parent's decision to vaccinate a child comes from the same source as another parent's not to. We are all afraid. Biss is a candid, original, and unfailingly smart guide through these thorny thickets." - Anne Fadiman "Imagine Eula Biss as herself a vaccine against vague and incoherent thinking, as a booster to the acuity of your thought, as a thermometer taking the temperature of our ideas about purity, contagion, individuality, and community. This book is a magnificent piece of research and of writing... And it has vampires in it." - Rebecca Solnit "I can't think of an American writer at work today who matches Eula Biss's combination of lyrical precision, exhaustive research, timely provocation, and fiercely examined conscience. Like so many great nonfiction classics, On Immunity will teach, provoke, chafe, inspire, haunt, and likely change its many readers. Its central, difficult, and ecstatic premise - that 'we owe each other our bodies' - couldn't be more urgent, as the question of how we contend with this interdependence, this collectivity, is fundamental to our human present and future." - Maggie Nelson "Eula Biss accomplishes two remarkable things in this book. She efficiently dismantles the wall between self-documentation and world-documentation. And she synthesizes a vast amount of information into the haunting and inescapable conclusion that 'We are ... continuous with everything here on earth. Including, and especially, each other.'" - Sarah Manguso "The inexplicableness of our human minds has led us to move forward and backward and sometimes in circles, but once in a while a clear voice puts a momentary stop to that muddled movement - - not to interfere but to allow a pause for us to question, to reexamine the familiar, and to demystify the common belief. Eula Biss gives us that voice in this audacious book, and offers a thorough understanding of one of the most important experiences that we all share - - vaccination." - --Yiyun Li

Présentation de l'éditeur :

In this bold, fascinating book, Eula Biss addresses our fear of the government, the medical establishment, and what may be in our children's air, food, mattresses, medicines, and vaccines. Reflecting on her own experience as a new mother, she suggests that we cannot immunize our children, or ourselves, against the world. As she explores the metaphors surrounding immunity, Biss extends her conversations with other mothers to mediations on the myth of Achilles, Voltaire's Candide, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, Susan Sontag's AIDS and its Metaphors, and beyond. On Immunity is an inoculation against our fear and a moving account of how we are all interconnected -- our bodies and our fates.
