A writer of precision and originality -The New Yorker "What is novel about these essays is that they are essays in the old if not defunct sense of the term. They mix fact with speculation and gravity with humor, are rich in apposite and astounding anecdote and are elegant in expression" -The New York Times Book Review "Dr. Gonzalez-Crussi is a natural essayist, picking up a topic that catches his fancy, revolving it, moving gracefully across large tracts of experience . . . A constant play of wit and curiosity" -John Gross, The New York Times "wonderful book-literally. [These essays] are products of original, courageous, and culturally well-nourished thinking that excites the mind and refreshes the spirit . . . With a novelist's eye, he escorts us through the gritty realities of bodily disrepair and decay" -Chicago Sun-Times "Marvelously original and provocative" -Los Angeles Times
