Lindsey Fitzharris Book
The Butchering Art
In the book, the author reveals the shocking world of nineteenth-century surgery and shows how it was transformed by advances made in germ theory and antiseptics between 1860 and 1875. She conjures up early operating theaters no place for the squeamish and surgeons, who, working before anesthesia, were lauded for their speed and brute strength. These pioneers knew that the aftermath of surgery was often more dangerous than patients’ afflictions, and they were baffled by the persistent infections that kept mortality rates stubbornly high. At a time when surgery couldn’t have been more hazardous, an unlikely figure stepped forward: a young, melancholy Quaker surgeon named Joseph Lister, who would solve the riddle and change the course of history.
She dramatically reconstructs Lister’s career path to his audacious claim that germs were the source of all infection and could be countered by a sterilizing agent applied to wounds. She introduces us to Lister’s contemporaries—some of them brilliant, some outright criminal—and leads us through the grimy schools and squalid hospitals where they learned their art, the dead houses where they studied, and the cemeteries they ransacked for cadavers.

Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine
The Butchering Art: Joseph Lister’s Quest to Transform the Grisly World of Victorian Medicine
I am so excited to announce that the subject of MY NEXT BOOK will be on the birth of plastic surgery told through the incredible story of Harold Gillies, the pioneering and eccentric surgeon who first united art and medicine to address the horrific injuries that resulted from World War I.
From the moment that the Dhak! Dhak! Dhak! Dhak! of the first machine gun rang out over the Western Front, one thing was clear: mankind military technology at the start of WWI wildly outpaced its medical capabilities. Bullets whizzed through the air at incredible speeds, discharging as much as 7,200 horsepower of energy in a single shot. Shells and mortar bombs exploded with a force that flung men around the battlefield like rag dolls. And a deadly new threat in the form of hot chunks of shrapnel, coated in the filth and bacteria of the battlefield, wrought terrible injuries on its victims. Had it not been for the heroic efforts of one man, these soldiers would have also been condemned to a lifetime of isolation.
My book will follow the story of Harold Gillies [pictured right, copyright: Dr. Andrew Bamji] who was presented with the seemingly impossible task of reconstructing entire faces with no textbooks to guide him, and no mentors to consult for advice. Working closely with a team of artists, Gillies did not just strive to restore function to his patients, many of whom could not breathe, swallow, or eat efficiently because of the damage to their faces. He was determined to give them back their identities as well. Here, you see an incredible example of reconstructive work from this era.
I can not wait to share this inspiring story with the world.
As with all good news, there is a bittersweet side to this announcement. I am thrilled to be working with my wonderful publisher FSG again, but sadly my editor Amanda Moon will be leaving next month to begin her own consulting business. She will be sorely missed, though I am looking forward to working with the brilliant Colin Dickerman on this second project. By Lindsey Fitzharris on 21st February 2018

Have you seen the maggots yet?’ Lindsey Fitzharris on the gruesome history of surgery
In between “vomiting and crying”, she spent eight months writing. A move to West Hampstead placed her coincidentally close to Lister’s grave, marked with a plain headstone, which she would visit to think and write. After a 500-page petition to the Home Office, she had indefinite leave to remain and within 24 hours of The Butchering Art being on the market, she had two six-figure offers from publishers in the US, and a day later, one in the UK. “I was so broke, I just started crying. My agent was like ‘No, act like this is totally normal, you have to negotiate.’”
