The winds and floods of 2005's Hurricane Katrina induced thousands of dramatic stories of rescue, survival, or tragedy, but perhaps none more resonant than those at New Orlean's Memorial Medical Center. For author Sheri Fink and other critics, what the venerated hospital had offered those grim days was far different than shelter from the storm. Indeed, the forty-five corpses found after the calm suggested to several observers that Memorial's physicians had sometimes functioned more as angels of death than as life-givers. In Five Days at Memorial, Fink adds depth and breadth to an article that won her a Pulitzer and a National Magazine Award.
