For 50 years, Roueche's absorbing accounts of the unraveling of medical mysteries were a much anticipated feature of The New Yorker. At his death last spring, he left behind seven new narratives that have never been published in book form; they are collected here, along with one earlier classic. All are among his best.

The stories included in this book were a little tedious. The maladies themselves, and the paths used by the physicians to diagnose them, were interesting, but the storytelling was drawn out. In particular I found the "conversational" style unappealing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
