Dr. Karlawish’s novel gets to the heart of the strange relationship between Dr. William Beaumont and Northern Michigan fur trader Alexis St. Martin, who, after a shotgun misfires, bears a hole in his stomach which never quite heals over.  Beaumont takes the opportunity to study the process of digestion, seeking to cement his reputation–but what does St. Martin have to say about their arrangement?

Historical Novels  Review called Open Wound “well-written and fascinating,” and the Wall Street Journal said that “Karlawish sketches their fraught relationship in the ensuing decades artfully, with clear relevance to the ethical questions of modern medicine.”
