The inspiration for the NBC drama New Amsterdam and in the spirit of Oliver Sacks, this intensely involving memoir from a former medical director is a “humanitarian and heartbreaking tapestry where modern medicine confronts the atrocities of life” (Kirkus Reviews).
Using the plights of twelve very different patients–from dignitaries at the nearby UN, to supermax prisoners at Riker’s Island, to illegal immigrants, and Wall Street tycoons–Dr. Eric Manheimer “offers far more than remarkable medical dramas: he blends each patient’s personal experiences with their social implications” (Publishers Weekly).
Manheimer was not only the medical director of the country’s oldest public hospital for over 13 years, but he was also a patient. As the book unfolds, the narrator is diagnosed with cancer, and he is forced to wrestle with the end of his own life even as he struggles to save the lives of others.
