When Force Meets Fate - A Mission to Solve an Invisible Illness
1) THE AUTHOR IS A VOICE FOR MARGINALIZED PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND CHRONIC ILLNESSES: Through his #OwnVoices memoir, When Force Meet Fate, Hill serves as a voice for disabled people and patients living with chronic illnesses, many of whom have been dismissed and marginalized by the medical establishment and society as a whole.
2) JAMISON HILL HAS WRITTEN POPULAR ESSAYS AND BEEN FEATURED IN THE MEDIA: The author has written personal essays for The New York Times, the Washington Post, Men’s Journal, the Los Angeles Times, Vox, VICE, and many others. His essay for The Times was adapted for WBUR’s Modern Love podcast and read by Pedro Pascal from the Mandalorian. Hill was also a main subject of the Netflix series Afflicted and he has been on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast.
3) THE AUTHOR HAS A POST-VIRAL ILLNESS SIMILAR TO COVID-19: Hill contracted the Epstein-Barr virus and a decade later is still living with post-viral symptoms similar to some of the prolonged effects of the coronavirus. Through his memoir, Hill will appeal to those looking for a firsthand case study in post-viral infection symptoms.
4) FOR FANS OF BRAIN ON FIRE: When Force Meets Fate provides the intrigue of Susannah Cahalan’s Brain on Fire but at further length and from a more introspective, less journalistic perspective.
