Title Details
Swallow by Cappello, Mary
Swallow: Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration, and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them
by Cappello, Mary
 
What drove Dr. Chevalier Jackson's peculiar obsession not only with removing foreign bodies from people's upper torsos but also with saving and cataloging the items that he retrieved? Surveying the space between interest and terror, curiosity and dread, Mary Cappello explores the poignant and baffling psychology that compels people to ingest non-nutritive things.
