Book DescriptionWhile reporting a story from India, New York journalist Patrick Wallingford inadvertently becomes his own headline when his left hand is eaten by a lion. In Boston, a renowned surgeon eagerly awaits the opportunity to perform the nation s first hand transplant. But what if the donor s widow demands visitation rights with the hand?
