Florence Williams On The Science Of Heartbreak
When journalist Florence Williams’ husband left their long marriage, she was heartbroken. But the breakup left more than an emotional wound: the damage was physical, too.
Williams wasn’t prepared for her body’s response to the collapse of her relationship. But, as a science writer, she was determined to find out more about what she was experiencing. Her new book, Heartbreak: A Personal and Scientific Journey, is part scientific inquiry with Williams seeking out experts who study loneliness and part tale of self-discovery in her journey to heal her own broken heart. Florence Williams joins us this Friday at noon, and Saturday at 11 a.m., to talk about the science of a broken heart.
