Staff Reviews

On Immunity is literary nonfiction at its best, an
all-encompassing exploration of a socially divisive subject,
intelligent, contemplative, beautifully written, and utterly mind
blowing. Using mythology, philosophy, literature, medical histories, and
cultural constructs, Biss teases apart every thread that makes up the
fabric of the immunization controversy and presents us with an honest
and important look at why we stand where we do and how we can
thoughtfully move forward together.

“Biss' essays about the immunization debate range from the personal to the body politic and back again. Drawing on her experiences as a mother and employing an astonishing diversity of sources, Biss plumbs our ancient fear of infection. Acknowledging the permeability of both our borders and bodies, she arrives at the conclusion that 'immunity is a shared space-a garden we tend together.' Biss' precise language and wry humor make On Immunity as engaging as it is informative.”
— Brooke Alexander, Brazos Bookstore, Houston, TX
