Further information:
“'Open…Heart Surgery' details my heart surgery in 2002. It's kind of a ‘primer.’ With pages that open in a variety of ways it reveals my chest going from healthy and hairy progressively to more injured with an obvious scar against little hair to being held together with steri-strips and staples against a naked chest. Then through an x-ray and angiogram into the heart itself and beyond." Michael Peven
