Saturday 3 July 2010, 14.30-16.00
Skin is the story and the storyteller.
So, what if a book bound in human skin connected the new world and
the old, just when Napoleon's itches were causing a hundred
thousand men to scratch? Meet the five protagonists of the new
novel 'The Book of Human Skin', which explores holy anorexia,
murder by smallpox scab, mortification of the flesh and adoration
of it. This event is part of the Medicine in Literature series.
Michelle Lovric, author of 'The Book of Human
Skin' (Bloomsbury, 2010).
This event is free.
