Overview

Rituals of Surgery by Richard Selzer

Selzer's first collection of short stories (originally published in 1974) weaves together the fantastic and grotesque with surgical precision. The sense that death lurks around every corner is heightened by dark irony and wit. He brings to light the horrors of surgery while displaying overwhelming compassion for his characters, creating a provocative commentary on the human condition.
