Natalie Angier, one of the foremost American science writers, is the author of the masterly book Natural Obsessions: The Search for the Oncogene. (1988). Now, in The Beauty of the Beastly, she has reshaped many of her daily and weekly articles into a narrative that vividly conveys the discoveries of contemporary biological science and how biologists made them. She has arranged her topics according to the energy from which they spring - the life forces that inform and energize her (and our) work. To Angier, the movement, the dance, the play of life supplies the heartbeat of knowledge. In seven sections entitled, in order, Loving, Dancing, Slithering, Adapting, Healing, Creating, and Dying, Angier focuses on what science knows about the living world, in her own witty and exalted language.
