The English Disease
The English Disease has been coined as a term to describe everything from missed penalties and vitamin D deficiency – to no sex please, tea and rickets. Exploring contemporary world events, including the international migration crisis and the British EU Referendum, alongside the lived experience of becoming a mother in a year of celebrity death and continental fracture, this collection examines the condition afresh.
With zombies, cats, Bowie, break-ups and the weather; eating disorders, buses, Beatrix Potter, queueing, nature, war and nursery rhymes. The English Disease draws upon class, colonialism and other undead matters to explore identity at a time of now… apocalypse?
