As the story builds to its dramatic and inevitable conclusion, the events that transpire throughout the day sway Rembrandt to make fundamental changes to his initial composition. Bringing to life the vivid world of Amsterdam in 1632, The Anatomy Lesson offers a rich slice of history and a textured story by a young master.
"Rembrandt's The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp is a narrative in paint which tells a story of Amsterdam in its Golden Age. Now, Nina Siegal's lovely novel dissects the dissection, evocatively translating the painted narrative into words, bringing a grim tableau to life and reanimating a moment in history when art, science, life, and death converged." — Russell Shorto, author of Amsterdam: A History of the World's Most Liberal City
"Brilliantly structured, wonderfully evocative, filled with vivid characters, The Anatomy Lesson transports the reader to that day in 1632 when the coat thief Aris Kindt passed from life to death and from death, thanks first to Rembrandt and now Nina Siegal, into immortality. A dazzling debut." —Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy

I cringed at the narration -- intolerable
What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?
I couldn't listen to this book for long. Bruce Mann's voice makes me cringe. I couldn't tolerate listening to this anymore. I'll get the book in print.
Any additional comments?
I will never get a book narrated by Bruce Mann again.

Horrible performance! !
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Just an awful read by Bruce Mann. I've listen to many, many books and have never, EVER not been able to finish it because of the reader. As another reviewer said…I'll get the book!
