A 2008 anthology of ~90 short stories, essays, and poems drawn from the NYU School of Medicine¿s semi-annual literary journal.Each entry deals in some way with illness or coping, although sometimes minimally and often peripherally. There are doctors and hospitals, but most of the pieces are about people in ordinary community. Combined, they threaten toward darkness. Yet in the midst there¿s a hilarious, satirical fantasy, and poems that leave me with a "Wow!"All of the writing is first-rate -- after nearly every entry, I found myself flipping to the contributor bios in the back to learn more about the writer. Profoundly moving and highly recommended.
