First Cut: A Season in the Human Anatomy Lab

First Cut: A Season in the Human Anatomy Lab Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With humor, compassion, and wisdom, Howard Carter recounts the semester he spent watching first-year medical students in a human anatomy lab. From the tentative early incisions of the back, the symbolic weight of extracting the heart, and by the end, the curious mappings of the brain, we embark on a path that is at once frightening, awesome, and finally redemptive.

About the Author

Howard Carter is a professor of Comparative Literature and Humanities at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has written extensively on the interface of the humanities and medicine.
