Synopsis
A literary collection edited by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the "Children of Crisis" series.

Take notes. In the end, you will suffer alone. But at the beginning you suffer with a whole lot of other people.—Lorrie Moore, from A Life in Medicine

A Life in Medicine collects stories, poems, and essays by and for those in the healing profession who are struggling to keep up with the science while staying true to the humanitarian goals at the heart of their work.

Described as "an admirably complete look at the best recent writing on medicine" by the Detroit Free Press, the book includes well-known authors such as William Carlos Williams, Wendell Berry, Anne Fadiman, Lorrie Moore, and Walt Whitman, as well as writing from doctors, nurses, practitioners, and patients. Provocative and moving contributions address issues of life and death, cancer and AIDS, seizures and psychosis, advocacy and anatomy, from both ends of the stethoscope.
