Direct Red
Author: Gabriel Weston
Publisher: Bond Street Books
Price: $29.95 (Hardcover)

When one goes under the knife, anesthesia relieves having to feel the pain associated with serious surgery. But Gabriel Watson slices open this world unknown in Direct Red, her chronicle of life as a surgeon. The depiction begins with how an unlikely medical worker entered the profession after obtaining an unrelated arts degree. The story propels quickly with emotionally and physically graphic descriptions of what transpires when one is put under. Honest and direct, Weston shares her experiences to relay the challenging life of a surgeon and to unearth an insider medical world, once seen only by the profession’s practitioners.
