Show Me Where it Hurts: Living with Invisible Illness description

Shortlisted for this year’s Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards, Kylie Maslen’s Show Me Where It Hurts explores the impact of chronic illness on the lives of sufferers, and is marked by its eloquence, candour and generosity.  Drawing on her own life and illness, Kylie documents the experience of living with pain with humour and courage, detailing its impact across such areas as housing, dating and work, and building her readers’ understanding through pop cultural references ranging from Frida Kahlo to Sally Rooney to Sponge Bob Squarepants.
