dc.description.abstract My thesis is a novel about the life and death of an American chef, told through his autopsy. Entitled The Dissection, it is told in two narratives: the chef, August Sweeney, a Pantagruelian figure, mad for meat and offal, who rockets to TV stardom and then dies suddenly at 45; and Maya Zhu, the young pathologist tasked with dissecting him, and who in so doing comes to question everything she knows about how we live, and how we die.
