Painful and literate
Patrick McGrath was a guest on a radio talk show when I luckily tuned in. He was plain-spoken about his writing style, (gothic), and he seemed intelligent. That's all I knew when I ordered Dr.Haggard's Disease. The book is a journey into pain - both emotional and physical. If you haven't felt grief, then don't bother with this book. You won't understand it. But if you have suffered loss - really suffered - be prepared to feel that gripping chill inside your chest again. If Mr. McGrath had not been such a literate and compelling author I would have put the book down after the first sharp pang. I didn't and was rewarded with an achingly skillful story.
