About this title
In this extraordinary narrative and visual collection, twelve stories are crafted out of the imagined lives of actual people. Each story is inspired by an exhibit at the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, a place of "terrible beauty" (Newsweek) that is "gorgeous and repulsive at once" (The New Yorker).Review:
"K. R. Sands's Boy of Bone, with illustrations by Jon Lezinsky, is a cabinet of curiosities, its fictional stories inspired by the people whose various body parts have been donated to the Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. . . .What could be a cheap, creepy trick transcends into moving (if also creepy) stories." --Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair
Kathleen Sands has breathed life into the dry bones and the medical curiosities of the Mutter Museum and brought an extraordinary new dimension to the Museum and The College. - Frederick S. Kaplan, M.D., Director, Center for Research in Fibrosdysplasia Ossificans Progressiva & Related Disorders, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania [the world's foremost expert on the "Boy of Bone" disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva].
