"A man cannot marry," Balzac once morbidly advised, "before he has studied anatomy and has dissected at the least one woman." (Fortunately, the novelist had neither married nor dissected when he wrote this.)
Hugh Aldersey-Williams' Anatomies is a cultural history of the human body that features both scientific oddities and our species' own peculiar takes on its strangeness. A spine-tingling and heartwarming tour of a subject close at hand.
