Reviews

"A richly eclectic, deeply insightful text that draws art and science, poetry and medicine, writing and healing into fertile conversation."

Ivan Vladislavic

"Eloquent Body explores the juxtaposition of healing and creativity both from a personal as well as a medical point of view in an open and honest way. This book is required reading for my medical colleagues and for all patients in search of healing"

Anne Pargiter, General Practitioner

"Alive to the reality of death, Garisch dances into the spit, as both doctor and patient, writer and reader, parent and child."

Pregs Govender

"Poet-doctor Dawn Garisch advocates dialogue between our bodies and our creative selves. In Eloquent Bodies she explores how and why we should pay more attention to this deep connection."
