Letters from Spring Street is a compilation of 83 articles published in Surgical News, The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons magazine. These individual and varied small chapters provide a unique and astute insight into the surgical experiences, surgical personalities, and the surgical life experienced by Professor Behan over his diverse surgical career. Full of twists and turns, underpinned by an encyclopaedic knowledge of art, Melbourne’s history, and historical plastic surgical practice, this collection invites the reader in, and then doesn’t let go. You want to read, just one more.

In this publication, Associate Professor Behan has produced a remarkable contribution to Melbourne plastic surgery and to Australian plastic surgery as a whole. Forwards are written by Brian Collopy, John Hanrahan, Earle Brown, Philip Truskett and Wayne Morrison. They all appropriately highly recommend this new book for the treasure it is. A great read.
