Antopol’s debut book, The UnAmericans, is a stunning story collection that explores characters shaped by the forces of history, from America to Israel to the Soviet Union, in critical moments of the last century.
I’ve never read anything quite like Internal Medicine. Terrence Holt is a practicing physician and a fine writer, and his essays describe critical moments of his residency, underscoring the vulnerable relationship between doctor and patient. From a dying artist who painted brilliant pictures of birds, to a man who seems incapable of remembering his own diagnosis, Holt leads us through a strange and fascinating landscape of suffering and healing. I can’t wait to read anything and everything else Terrence Holt ever writes.
