Summary
"[Terrence Holt] is Melville + Poe + Borges but with a heart far more capacious."—Junot DíazHolt, whose In the Valley of the Kings was hailed as a "work of genius" (New York Times) and made Amazon's Top Ten Short Story Collections of the year, brings a writer's eye to his experiences as a first-year graduate doctor.Intense, ironic, heartfelt, and heartbreaking, these nine vivid episodes take us to the bedside of a patient dying in a house full of cursing parrots, through a nightmarish struggle to convince a man that he has cancer, to a life-and-death effort to keep an oxygen mask on a claustrophobic patient, and into the lounge of a snowbound hospital where doctors swap yarns through the night.Personal, poignant, and meticulously precise, these stories evoke Chekhov, Maugham, and William Carlos Williams. Internal Medicine is an account of what it means to be a doctor, to be mortal, and to be human."Each exquisitely crafted and evocative tale reveals not only the power of Holt's storytelling, but the stark realization that for doctors and patients alike, it's our bodies that "remain the essential mystery we keep trying to solve." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"Terrence Holt writes with unflinching honesty about all the fears, joys and brutalities of a junior doctor's work." - Karen Hitchcock"Holt dissects the medical experience in exquisite and restrained prose." - New York TimesTerrence Holt is a writer and an internist specializing in geriatric medicine, teaching and practicing at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill
