Confessions of a Knife by Richard Selzer
Book DescriptionMerging art and religion with science, these largely autobiographical essays delve deeply into the emotional territory of medicine commonly avoided by other writers. This collection, first published in 1979, utilises the physical body as a means to explore the human mind and soul. Never hesitant to admit his own frailties, Selzer draws readers a first-hand glimpse into the medical world.
