Obsession: A History

This recommendation is a bit tongue-in-cheek. Lennard J. Davis’ Obsession: A HistoryObsession: A Historytracks the “disease” of obsession from demonic possession to contemporary television addiction. We’ve all got an unusually avid interest in something, perhaps an obsession. Rather than retreat and “fix” it, have a read of Davis’ book. Now out from University of Chicago Press. Available now from AmazonObsession: A History.
