Carl Shuker’s new novel is a compelling story of human fallibility, and of the dangerous hunger for black and white answers in a world of exponential complication and nuance. When something goes badly wrong during an operation, a surgeon at a city hospital—a gifted, driven and rare woman excelling in a male-dominated culture—finds her life redefined by a mistake.
Carl Shuker, a former editor at the British Medical Journal, is the author of five remarkable novels.
Come and hear Carl in conversation with journalist and author Naomi Arnold.
