Beneath the Skin: Love Letters to the Body by Great Writers (Paperback)Ned Beauman (author), Naomi Alderman (author), Thomas Lynch (author,author of introduction), Philip Kerr (author), Various (author), A. L. Kennedy (author), Chibundu Onuzo (author)
Buried beneath layers of flesh, our hearts pump, our lungs inflate, our kidneys filter. These organs, and others, are essential to our survival but remain largely unknown to us.
In Beneath the Skin, fifteen writers each explore a different body part: Naomi Alderman unravels the intestines and our obsession with food; Thomas Lynch celebrates the womb as a miracle; AL Kennedy explores the nose's striking ability to conjure memories; and Philip Kerr traces the remarkable history of brain surgery.
Moving, intimate and often unexpected, this is an awe-inspiring voyage through the mysterious landscape of our bodies.
