This month’s Memoir title


First, we make the beast beautiful : a new journey through anxiety

by Wilson, Sarah

The Chinese believe that before you can conquer a beast, you must first make it beautiful.’ This Chinese proverb has been the key to Sarah Wilson understanding her own lifelong struggle with anxiety. Here she looks at the triggers and treatments of anxiety, the fashions and fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama, processing all she learns through the prism of her own experiences.
