'Mutants' book wins award

The Guardian First Book prize has been awarded to Dr Armand Leroi who researches evolutionary development at Imperial College. Described as 'a study of the curious and touching forms into which the human body is sometimes cast', this book is bound to be of interest in how we define what is 'normal' and the depiction of deformity in popular culture. Amazon is currently selling the book at 30% off. I'm looking forward to reading it.
