A Passion for Science

Rebecca Abrams

The author of Touching Distance, a novel based on the true story of a brilliant doctor who discovered germ theory a century before Lister, but died with his reputation in tatters, shared with us her fascination for scientific discovery, the difference between truth and knowledge and the moral responsibilities that accompany discoveries.

Rebecca Abrams is the author of both fiction and non-fiction. Non-fiction titles include When Parents Die, an established classic in its field, and Three Shoes One Sock and No Hairbrush, the best-seller guide to having a second child. An award-winning journalist, she is a former columnist on the Daily Telegraph and a long-standing reviewer for the Guardian.
