Bone Portraits

Available in Library

In 1895, a hapless inventor stumbles upon a light that burns through skin: in a flash, the X-ray is born. A wild ride of gothic horror, old-time vaudeville, and sweeping romance, Bone Portraits takes us back to this moment of discovery, when the world split open like an atom and nothing could ever be seen the same way again.
