Editorial Reviews Review

"Remarkable. " "Beautifully written stories artfully strung together by a fine craftsman. " Coined respectively by Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews, these words represent only a small portion of the praise garnered by this first-time author, a neurosurgeon with an understanding of human vulnerability--including his own. The stories are of people you will come to know like neighbors, people whose courage you will celebrate, whose passages you will mourn. Marc Flitter's deeply moving book stands as a tribute to the patients he has known, as well as to the precious, ironic, and tentative balance of life.

From Library Journal

Flitter is a neurosurgeon, not a writer, but this collection of essays is often haunting?less memoir than memorial to the patients and colleagues who taught him something about humility and the human spirit. Unlike many books in this genre, it is actually short on medical detail, recalling the works of Richard Selzer or the poet/cardiologist John Stone. The typical surgeon's bravado is balanced nicely by the late-night insecurities and the admission that honest doctors face unanswerable questions. Not a how-to or a what-happened-next, this is instead a reverie, often beautifully written, that reveals Flitter's emotional life?just the sort of book that introspective types considering medicine would love. General collections with literate patrons will benefit, as will collections in medicine.?Mark L. Shelton, Univ. of Massachusetts Medical Ctr., Worcester
