A Disease Called Fatigue:
“Germs on earth are fighting to subsist. We only realise their existence when they enter our lives. To achieve this, like surfers, they take the first wave they can. One wins a thousand dies. Diseases appear and disappear throughout the centuries, producing new variations and mutations of themselves not new species.”
The book “A Disease Called Fatigue” is about the link
- between the old and the wild continent,
- between a Pasteurian school of microbiologists who made striking discoveries during the twentieth century and a new wave of scientists,
- between a procession of germs and waves of diseases evolving through geography and history.
