This book is the story of twelve people, each
living with long-term illness. Delving into the routines and rhythms of
everyday life, the book reveals the significance of the things that we usually
take for granted, from what we eat to when we sleep, how we move, and what we wear. Learning from the lives portrayed, it
explores ideas of care, vulnerability and choice, questioning what it means to
live a modern life with illness and illuminating the vitality of bodies along
the way.

Juxtaposing academic text with rich
descriptions and vivid illustrations, including video stills, journal extracts,
and drawings, the book highlights the sensory and emotional intimacies of
visual sociology and demonstrates the use and value of sensuous scholarship.
