About the Book 

HEADCHEESE is an experimental and epistolary novel that peers into the world of Acrotomophila. It’s a deep dive into the world of amputee fetishism, comprised of the personal accounts of a disparate group of people with diverse reasons for wanting to have their limbs (and/or other body parts) removed, interspersed with documents from doctors, scientists, historians, and others exploring the history and implications of amputation.
