Description
(2006 Giller Prize Winner) This collection of interlinked stories—also the inspiration for the HBO Canada television series of the same name—follows the early careers of Fitzgerald, Ming, Chen and Sri, four interns making the transition from medical school to hospital life. Imagine dissecting your first corpse, for example, and having to confess you've mislaid the head. And how do you convince a delusional man that his beautiful neighbor is not, in fact, colluding with him to kill her husband so they can be together? Or explain to the widow of a heart-attack patient that the barbershop her husband died in specialized in "backroom services" not on the public price list? This beautifully written debut by Canadian emergency physician Vincent Lam offers black humor, moral dilemmas both common and extraordinary, and a realistic—at times shocking—portrait of today's medical profession.

"Direct in style, unsparing though compassionate in observation, subtle in emotion, and occasionally gruesome in humor, Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures follows four medical students from widely different backgrounds as their stories intertwine, as their illusions shatter, and as the meanings of many lives expand around them. The good news is that doctors are human beings. The bad news is that doctors are human beings. The other good news is that this book marks a stunning debut."—Margaret Atwood
