Commissioned by the Amsterdam Surgeons’ Guild, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp was the first major Rembrandt work to catapult the young painter to international fame. Taking this painting as its inspiration, Nina Siegal’s novel The Anatomy Lesson opens on the morning of the medical dissection and follows several characters as they prepare for the evening’s big event:

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

I couldn't listen to this book for long. Bruce Mann's voice makes me cringe. I couldn't tolerate listening to this anymore. I'll get the book in print.

Any additional comments?

I will never get a book narrated by Bruce Mann again.
