Body of Work: Meditations on Mortality from the Human Anatomy Lab
Review Date: 3/11/2010
Helpful Score: 1


In an extraordinarily sensitive and present way, Christine Montross shares her journey through the early period of being a medical student. This story centers around the anatomical dissection of a cadaver that herself, becomes a metaphoric vehicle for reflecting on many things human. I don't recall ever finding such a slow page-turner: for the simple reason that I did not want to rush through this lovely piece of writing and have it end too soon. Anyone considering a career in the health professions and everyone else who's ever considered what being human is all about should read this! Guess that covers all of us...A real gem of a read. This author knows how to craft words - "meditations" indeed...
