Hello. I’m a writer, radio broadcaster and GP based in London. I’m currently working on a nonfiction book, ANIMA, about the idea of the soul from anthropological, scientific and historical perspectives, to be published by Picador (UK) and Pantheon (US).
If you’d like to listen to my radio programmes, below are links to episodes of my favourite project of all so far: Savage To Self.
