Description: Ever since his own father dedicated his body to medical research, Albert Howard Carter was intrigued by the fates of our bodies. First Cut: A Season in the Human Anatomy Lab is Carter's account of the semester he spent watching new med students at Emory University in Atlanta dissect human cadavers for the first time. The students began the course with the heart; they finished with the puzzling key to the body -- the brain -- and with a newfound reverence for the dead. From the immense cadaver they named "Nero" to the ancient corpse called "Little Old Lady", each dissection taught the students lessons on the body's structural beauties, and the rhythms of life and death. With humour and compassion, Carter examines the minutiae of the heart and soul, offering thoughts on what it means to be a doctor and a patient, and what the dead can teach the living. First Cut is a magical tour of our unseen selves.
