    HarperCollins is proud to introduce DIRECT RED, an eloquent and piercing account of a young woman’s surgical education. We think that you might enjoy this book as someone in the medical field, and we would love the opportunity to share it with you and your readers.

    “Concise, literate, truthful . . . moving. . . . As well-written and sensitive an account . . . of the glories and miseries of the practice of medicine as you are likely ever to read.”
    — Anthony Daniels, Literary Review (London)

    Surgeons have long been known for their allergy to doubt, an unsurprising trait in professionals who must play God, routinely risking someone else’s life in order to do their job. But in this poignant account of her surgical training, Gabriel Weston, a member of Britain’s Royal College of Surgeons, reveals the humanity beneath the veneer of invincibility. Interweaving her own story with those of her patients, Weston evokes both the humor and the heartbreak that come of medicine’s daily confrontation with the ultimate unknowability of the human body. With prose that never flinches from the raw, graphic realities of a surgeon’s day, Weston confronts life, death, and the unique difficulties of being a female surgeon in a heavily male-dominated profession.

    Please let me know if you would be interested in receiving a review copy of DIRECT RED by Gabriel Weston.
    Thank you,
