"Doctor Zay, long out of print, is the earliest US novel showing a woman as a physician at the height of her successful career. Michael Sartisky's afterword ably places the novel within its cultural context."
Carol Farley Kessler, author of Charlotte Perkins Gilman
"How does a man woo a woman when the usual masculine and feminine roles are reversed? Elizabeth Stuart Phelp's Doctor Zay is at one and the same time an important study of the entrance of women into the medical profession in the nineteenth century and a witty expose of the artificiality of cultural conventions. Its insights into gender roles, marriage, and professional work for women are still pertinent today."
