Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Perhaps not a novel for everyone, but I know the author as a wonderful poet. This is a beautifully written, rather taut psychological story that reflects the author's background as a physician.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Peter LaPrade on May 28, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Abse's "Dr Simmonds" was a boring novel that is thankfully short(about 180 pages). Most of the novel takes place through the diary entries of Dr. Simmonds, who is an Anti-Semite and has a noticable dark side that becomes darker once he becomes attracted to the wife of one of his patients.
