About the book


“Without Anesthesia is an original, sobering, and haunting visceral contemplation of love, anguish, morbidity, obsession, knowing and unknowability, the seen and the felt. The intense desire for intimacy and commune on the part of characters and readers evokes riveting anticipation and obsessive page-turning anxiety.”

— Mariam Beevi Lam, author of Precariat Reckoning: Viet Nam, Post-Trauma, and Strategic Affect
