    Many of us pay little attention to our bodies until we fall ill, but they are the most universal aspect of our lives, providers of all our pleasurable sensations and repository of all that we feel or know. Anatomies takes the reader on a tour of the body, with remarkable stories from the history of science, explanations of how our organs work and reflections on what different parts of the body have meant to artists and writers down the ages.
