The Anatomist: A True Story of Gray's Anatomy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A wonderful writer, Bill Hayes tells the multi-layered story of the two extraordinary young men who produced the most famous medical text of all time - a turning point in medical history, and a continuing influence and inspiration for artists, doctors and anatomists a century and a half later. Part memoir, part biography, part guided tour into the marvels of the human body, The Anatomist deserves a place on every bookshelf. And if you do not already have a copy of Gray's Anatomy, Bill Hayes's remarkable account will surely inspire you to get one. — Oliver Sacks, author and neurologist

All laud and honor to Hayes. In perusing the body's 650 muscles and 206 bones, he has made the case that we are... "fearfully and wonderfully made." — The Washington Post

Prose both lucid and arrestingly beautiful. — Publishers Weekly

The classic medical text known as Gray's Anatomy is one of the most famous books ever created. In this masterly work of creative nonfiction, Bill Hayes uncovers the extraordinary lives of the seminal volume's author and illustrator while providing a scalpel's-eye view into the ingenuity of the human body.

Bill Hayes is the best-selling author of Sleep Demons and Five Quarts.

Synopsis:

"Hayes pays eloquent tribute to two masterpieces: the human body and the book detailing it."--Publishers Weekly
