The Lines We Draw

Add to my list

A short-form nonfiction e-book that evolved out of an extraordinary conversation with the late Dr. Alfred Prince, a hepatitis researcher, about the use of chimpanzees in medical research, and expanded into a larger discussion about the Liberian Civil War, the ethics of vivisection and the contradictions of human love.
