about this book

The Anatomy Lesson, the third volume of the trilogy and epilogue Zuckerman Bound, is a great comedy of illness written in what the English critic, Hermione Lee, has described as "a manner at once...brash and thoughtful... lyrical and wry, which projects through comic expostulations and confessions...a knowing, humane authority." Nathan Zuckerman, renowned novelist, now suffers from a mysterious affliction, one that cannot be pinpointed by his doctors, ultimately a pain that may be caused by his own books.
