Beautiful, literary linked collection!
Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain is a tour de force. Not only is each of Kirsten Menger-Anderson's stories a gem in and of itself, but the collection as a timeline of the remarkably whacky whims of psychiatry over the years—blood- letting, lobotomies, and spontaneous combustion. The genetic outreaches of one remarkable family allow us to follow through the ages how different offspring have tested the fringes of medicine from the 1600s through the current time. Wonderful characters. Beautiful writing. A real page-turner!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
