London Review Bookshop

In Adventures in Human Being (Profile) GP and regular LRB contributor Gavin Francis takes us on a fascinating tour of the human body, offering insights on everything from the ribbed surface of the brain to the secret workings of the heart and the womb; from the pulse of life at the wrist to the unique engineering of the foot. Drawing on his own experience as a practitioner and on the often surprising history of how the human body has been seen in the past, Gavin Francis will be talking about his latest book, and about the health of the National Health Service, with writer and curator Gareth Evans.
