9780330336659: Gray's Anatomy

In middle age Spalding Gray has entered 'the Bermuda Triangle of health', that place where the body begins to break down in alarming and humiliating ways. His immediate problem is an eye complaint that could be corrected with minor surgery. But for the high priest of high anxiety, nothing is ever minor. And so Gray embarks on a crazed crusade for wellness that takes him from a Native American sweat lodge to a dictatorial nutritionist and, finally, to a gory session with the 'Elvis Presley of psychic surgeons' in the Far East. 'Gray has turned his trademark navel-gazing into looking himself in the eye -- literally ...A witty tour through the world of alternative medicine and his own anxieties' Washington Post 'One of the funniest travelogues of the human landscape [Gray] has yet spun out ...As close as he has ever been to becoming a stand-up comedian. God bless him for it' Chicago Tribune

From the Back Cover:

"Gray has turned his trademark navel-gazing into looking himself in the eye -- literally...A witty tour through the world of alternative medicine and his own anxieties." -- Washington Post

"One of the funniest travelogues of the human landscape [Gray] has yet spun out...As close as he has ever been to becoming a stand-up comedian. God bless him for it." -- Chicago Tribune

"Spalding Gray may be the nation's most outstanding storyteller. Nothing eludes his eye or the sureness of his satire. The secret of his success is the skewed angle of vision -- his eccentric wit and ruthless candor." -- Los Angeles Times
