This week we're reading... "Eleanor Morgan's wonderful, reassuring Anxiety For Beginners. She writes beautifully and blindingly honestly in the first half, but then, instead of leaving us with some limp chat about lavender pillows, she looks at what makes anxiety on a physiological and molecular level, examining what fear actually is."

As Anxiety for Beginners hits bookstores, we talk to its author Eleanor Morgan about coming to terms with mental health and why attitudes are starting to change.

This week we’re reading... "Structured using dictionary entries, The Lover's Dictionary somehow managed to be an unpretentious post-modern take on love.

Title: The Lover's Dictionary Author: David Levithan Genre: Romance Release date: February 2012 Publisher: Fourth State Forma.
