Mutants: on genetic variety and the human body
Stepping effortlessly from myth to cutting-edge science, Mutants gives a brilliant narrative account of our genetic code and the captivating people whose bodies have revealed itÂ—a French convent girl who found herself changing sex at puberty; children who, echoing HomerÂ's Cyclops, are born with a single eye in the middle of their foreheads; a village of long-lived Croatian dwarves; one family, whose bodies were entirely covered with hair, was kept at the Burmese royal court for four generations and gave Darwin one of his keenest insights into heredity. This elegant, humane, and engaging book Â“captures what we know of the development of what makes us humanÂ” (Nature).
