    Internal Medicine
    A Doctor's Stories
    ''[Terrence Holt] is Melville + Poe + Borges but with a heart far more capacious.'' - Junot Di?az Holt, 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.
