And other offal
by Robert D. Cohen

Splancreas and some other offal is the third in a trilogy, following Robert D. Cohen’s first two books, Man and the Liver (Matador, December 2011) and Nephrosapiens (Matador, 2012).

It describes the biology and pathology of the spleen, pancreas, heart and lungs, brain, ovaries and testicles, tongue and lips, intestinal lining, tail and blood. The book goes as far back in history and deals with the appearances of the organs. It also describes the use of the various organs in cuisine – haute or otherwise. The linguistic use of the organ names is also exemplified and all medical and technical terms are explained in the glossary.

Splancreas and some other offal, like its predecessors in the series, will appeal to readers interested in human biology, and covers anatomy, microscopic structure and physiological functions, symptoms of disease and illness, history, culture and cuisine. Robert also offers anecdotes that will be of general interest, references art where these organs have been featured throughout history, and presents a number of dishes that include them.
