"K. R. Sands's Boy of Bone, with illustrations by Jon Lezinsky, is a cabinet of curiosities, its fictional stories inspired by the people whose various body parts have been donated to the Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. . . .What could be a cheap, creepy trick transcends into moving (if also creepy) stories." --Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair
