Overview

In The Bone Broker, Lillian Necakov steps into the operating room of human history to take the pulse of a troubled world. This is visceral poetry that bears witness to a 'landscape haunted by centuries of rage,' in which the drama of public life takes a personal toll on those who are 'infected with the ceremony of war. ' Necakov's montage of startling imagery is a powerful antidote to indifference and an elegaic testament to the elements of the human condition that once made us whole.

Reviews

His view is fresh air that rises above the fetid self-absorption and self-referential miasma that so characterizes the celebration of creativity in cities today. (Joel Kotkin, author of The City: A Global History)
