About this product
- DescriptionThe extraordinary prize-winning debut from Andrew Miller. Winner of the IMPAC Award and James Tait Black Memorial Prize. At the dawn of the Enlightenment, James Dyer is born unable to feel pain. A source of wonder and scientific curiosity as a child, he rises through the ranks of Georgian society to become a brilliant surgeon. Yet as a human being he fails, for he can more feel love and compassion than pain. Until, en route to St Petersburg to iculate the Empress Catherine against smallpox, he meets his nemesis and saviour.
- Author BiographyAndrew Miller's first novel, Ingenious Pain, was published by Sceptre in 1997 and greeted as the debut of an outstanding new writer.
