Description: The sensational #1 bestseller from Argentina comes to America with a dash of period detail and a twist of eroticism -- and intoxicating blend that is sure to be the toast of the literary season.

Published to critical acclaim in his native Argentina, Federico Andahazi's "The Anatomist" instantly transports readers to Venice in the sixteenth century. For it is in that place and time that the anatomist, Mateo Colon, is on the verge of making a most earthshaking discovery: the center of the female's erotic universe. Colon has always thought of himself as a man of science and reason in all age of stubborn superstition. But even he is tempted to alchemy when he faces the age-old problem that could defeat the greatest of male minds: how to make a woman deeply, deliciously happy.

When an encounter with a beautiful, ailing patient leads to his astonishing discovery, Colon realizes that this "sweet newly found land" is indeed the key to the intimate mystery of feminine pleasure. His sudden, skillful knowledge wins him the attention of Mona Sophia, the loveliest prostitute in all of Venice... and of the authorities, who soon bring the wrath of the Inquisition upon his head.

Calling to mind the lush historical scope of Umberto Eco and the earthy wit and sensuality of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, "The Anatomist" is now available in America. In prose as delicate and flowing as a satin slip, Federico Andahazi takes readers on a provocative journey and reminds them of the territory that can never be completely conquered, whose exploration and discovery provide an endlessly renewable delight.
