'Wilkie Collins, Medicine and the Gothic sheds new light on the position of criminality, the physical body, and the mind in Collins's work through a thorough examination of contemporary medicine and its newly gothicised nature. The work is a good starting point for anyone interested in reading Collins's novels for their criminal plots, examining the texts closely whilst implementing interdisciplinary scholarship, a burgeoning and important area of research in the study of Collins's fiction. Talairach-Vielmas's work is both interesting and readable, providing a focused study that examines exactly what it promises in the title.' Verity Burke, The British Society for Literature and Science
