Publisher's Synopsis

'It raises the standard of nature writing. This is both radical manifesto and activism in book form' Sally Huband, author of Sea Bean

'Long before I knew I was sick, I knew I was breakable . . .'


After years of unexplained health problems, Polly Atkin's understanding of her body had become fluid and disjointed. When she was finally diagnosed with two chronic conditions in her thirties, she began to piece together her own history: the fractures and dislocations, the exhaustion and medical disregard.

A searing blend of memoir, nature writing and pathography, Some of Us Just Fall traces a remarkable journey through illness. From misdiagnoses to wild swimming in the Lake District, Polly examines her genetic inheritance, her place in the natural world and her future in her body.

'Defiant and dazzling' Freya Bromley, author of The Tidal Year
