Award-winning writer and doctor Gavin Francis knows that to live means to change, as we grow, heal, learn and age. He looks at the transformations that trace the arc of human life, from inevitabilities, such as puberty or menopause, to milestones like pregnancy. Drawing not only on case studies, but on history, art, literature and myth, he shows that humanity’s essence is mutability. [122]
