Elephantina

(2008)
A novel by

 
It is April 1706; an elephant sighs forlornly, sits down and dies by the side of the road, just outside Dundee. Foiling the energetic attempts of the locals to make off with trophies, surgeon-apothecary Patrick Blair attempts to make his name, and his fortune, as the first man in the fledgling Great Britain to dissect an elephant. His assistant, Gilbert Orum, plans a different tribute. Whose monument will be the most celebrated? And just who is being immortalised? This is an inventive literary novel that tackles the tricky eighteenth-century problem of how to dissect an elephant.
