The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini - Paperback

ID: 755069568

SDP Publishing. Paperback. New. Paperback. 392 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Doctor Taco is a different coming of age story. Sam is a manchild who hates studying and spends most of his time pining for the love of his life. He dreams of one day being that heroic doctor you always see on TV. Unfortunately, he cant even get a crummy letter of recommendation from his organic chemistry professor. The south of the border med school admissions officers arent as choosey as they are at Harvard Med. Follow Sam as his story involving smuggling, prostitutes and grave-robbing unfolds. Be sure to watch out for the alligator and the Secret Service. Could Doctor Taco be the story of that doctor with whom you last made an appointment Es possible! Doctor Irv Danesh was born in Brooklyn, N. Y. Before he started kindergarten he and his family had schlepped to five new homes because of his fathers jobs. This was to be a recurrent theme in his life. Like the main character of his novel, Doctor Taco, Irv just didnt concentrate well in college. Women, and the lack of them, had a lot to do with that. After the rejections for admission to medical schools in the States arrived, Irv joined the Diaspora of similar, slacker pre-meds, and journeyed south of the Border. Two years of cultural and academic re-education enabled Irv to trek back to the promised land of Brooklyn. More specifically, Irv was nurtured at the worlds largest community hospital, Brookdale Medical Center. This mega-hospital provided him enough stab wounds, gunshot wounds, blunt trauma, and general patient stupidity to regale his friends with stories for years to come. After two years of surgical training, he decided he didnt want to spend the rest of his life removing gallbladders or doing bariatric surgery. Being somewhat of an adrenalin junkie, he was in the right place at the right time to snag a residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in the new field of Emergency Medicine. He has practiced in inner city emergency departments for twenty-six years. Dr. Irvs job statistically has a high rate of burnout. He fought through two of these periods, the first by moving to Boston and serving as an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Tufts School of Medicine. He later continued his career as Associate Director of Emergency Medicine at the Lawrence General Hospital. It was here that he had his second period of burnout. He again was in the right place at the right time, helping birth USA Networks Royal Pains. Irv started as Medical Consultant, advancing over three seasons to Co-Producer. His MacGyver-like vignettes such as skull drilling, fishhook chest wall stabilizing, and other pseudomedical procedures would never be allowed in conventional AMA approved medicine. Then again, Dr. Irv marches to his own drummer. He wrote Doctor Taco as a fictional account of the great American student exodus to Mexico in the 1970s. Many of the scenarios are true, but needed to be altered to maintain privacy, sometimes his own. He hopes that you enjoy reading this story. Dr. Irv lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts with his lovely and grammatically correct wife, and their dog, Harry. He loves the change of seasons except for the winter, which he curses every year. His four artistic sons all left for other parts of Massachusetts and N. Y. All in all, he would rather be in South Beach. This item ships from multiple locations.

Dimensions: 7.7in. x 5.0in. x 1.1in.Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith; a passionate craftsman who was admired and resented by the most powerful political and artistic personalities in sixteenth-century Florence, Rome and Paris. He was also a murderer and a braggart, a shameless adventurer who at different times experienced both papal persecution and imprisonment, and the adulation of the royal court. Inn-keepers and prostitutes, kings and cardinals, artists and soldiers rub shoulders in the pages of his notorious autobiography: a vivid portrait of the manners and morals of both the rulers of the day and of their subjects. Written with supreme powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humour, this is an unrivalled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici.

Author:

Cellini, Benvenuto

Title:

The Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini

ISBN:

0140447180

Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated goldsmith and distinguished sculptor, yet it is on his autobiography that much of his fame rests. Begun in Florence when he was fifty-eight, it was primarily intended to be the story of his life and art, his tragedies and triumphs. However, as he was an active participant in the wars and struggles of the period and drew his friends and enemies from all levels of society, it became a vivid and convincing portrait of the manners and morals both of the rulers of the sixteenth century and of their subjects.With enviable powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humor, reflected in an equally vigorous and extravagant style, Cellini has provided an intriguing and unrivaled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici. For this edition George Bull has revised and expanded his Introduction, added comprehensive Notes, and updated the Bibliography.
