Inhaltsangabe: First published by Bloomsbury in 1987, a contemporary novel from the author of DEBATABLE LAND. An eminent, aloof heart surgeon is distraught when one of his male colleague's announces his intention to marry, thus ruining the surgeon's hopes of romance with his colleague, and he embarks on an exploitative experiment with severe consequences.

Inhaltsangabe: Lucas Salik, eminent surgeon, is accustomed to performing bold experiments on other people’s hearts. Many might think him cold-hearted, but Lucas is in love with Hal Darbo and sees his desperate, tenuous hold on him slipping away with Hal’s intention to marry. With his friend and confidante Anne Cowdenbeath, Lucas embarks on an experiment far odder than any that takes place in his working life. His subject is Cora, a young girl without family ties and ripe for emotional vivisection. But blood sports turn out to be more dangerous than anticipated and sinister happenings begin to disrupt the surgeon’s tidy plan . . . ‘Very fresh, very sharp, and as memorable as a nightmare. It is a brilliant and distinguished book. I was astounded by it’ Peter Levi ‘Poised, startling and innovative . . . an astonishingly accomplished writer’ Anita Brookner ‘This writing is so extraordinary that I am tempted to call it an opera. It is a high and extravagant style, voluptuous, avid and epigrammatic, passionate and risky’ Sunday Telegraph ‘For sheer flair, this is a debut of the highest promise’ Sunday Times
