Amy asked Alyssa B. Sheinmel:

Was FACELESS inspired by a particular person's case?

Alyssa B. Sheinmel Not exactly; the idea began with an article in The New Yorker about a particular case (unlike Maisie's, a full face transplant), but the article also discussed the history of these procedures and transplants in general. The science was so fascinating - I couldn't wait to learn more in order to tell Maisie's story.
