Über diesen Titel


With this beautiful book, Spencer Nadler takes us into the remarkable world of cells–and into the lives of people whose behavior is affected by the cells seen under his microscope. After twenty-five years as a surgical pathologist, Nadler began to miss interacting with the people whose cells he studied. And so, he came out from behind his microscope and as a writer began to focus on people as well as on their cells, examining in this unusual book how a person’s life and spirit–and cells–coexist.

In the diminutive landscape of the microscope, a young patient’s sickle cells look like harmless apples and bananas, but the impact they have on him and his mother is acute. Under Nadler’microscope, normal breast cells look like pink hydrangeas to the remarkably spirited Hanna and her breast cancer cells like distorted hula-hoops. Among the other people we meet are an orchestra conductor who must choose between the rhythms of his music and those of his heart; an obese woman who must learn to get along with her fat cells as she copes with bariatric surgery; two people with early Alzheimer’s disease who fall in love and decide to live together despite the microscopic changes in their brains. In The Language of Cells, Spencer Nadler illuminates in lyrical prose “the quiet heroics of everyday people” as cells and the spirit contribute to the beauty of the human continuum.

From the Back Cover:

“Sensitive, often charming, always informative. . . . Moments of poignant realization abound.” –The Los Angeles Times

“Dr. Nadler’s book is rich with the revelation of self-discovery, with lessons learned through the microscope, with eloquent observations of how human life ‘must transcend the lives of its cells.’” –The New York Times

“Nadler’s essays glow with intelligence and sympathy.” –San José Mercury News

“Nadler takes medical narrative to a whole different level, both in his wonderful prose and in his focus on the story playing out under the lens of the microscope.” –Abraham Verghese
