Eula Biss, 'On Immunity'

July, 2020

In 2009, as Eula Biss was giving birth to her son, a novel influenza – swine flu – was spreading from Mexico to the US. Should she immunize her child? In conversation with editor Amy Sherlock, Biss discussed the history of vaccination and our fears of it – newly urgent in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The paperback edition of the book can be found via Fitzcarraldo Editions (UK) here or via Graywolf Press (US) here, and in many other book stores.
