What is it to be human? This question, as inBirdsong, is at the heart ofHuman Traces. The story begins in Brittany where a young, poor boy somehow passes his medical exams and goes to Paris, where he attends the lectures of Charcot, the Parisian neurologist who set the world on its head in the 1870s. With a friend, he sets up a clinic in the mysterious mountain district of Carinthia in south-east Austria. IfThe Girl at the Lion d'Orwas a simple three-movement symphony,Birdsongan opera,Charlotte Graya complex four-movement symphony andOn Green Dolphin Streeta concerto, thenHuman Tracesis a Wagnerian grand opera. From the Hardcover edition.

display_description Sixteen-year-old Jacques Rebir╠łe is living a humble life in rural France, studying butterflies and frogs by candlelight in his bedroom. Across the Channel, in England, the playful Thomas Midwinter, also sixteen, is enjoying a life of ease, resigned to follow his father's wishes and to pursue a career in medicine. A fateful seaside meeting four years later sets the two young men on a profound course of friendship and discovery; they will become pioneers in the burgeoning field of psychiatry. But when a female patient at the doctors' Austrian sanatorium becomes dangerously ill, the two men's conflicting diagnoses threaten to divide them and to undermine all their professional achievements.
