Through the eyes of Fitz, Ming, Chen, and Sri, Vincent Lam finds conflict - and humanity - in the most surprising moments. Together these doctors test the boundaries of intimacy as they cope with exam pressure, weigh moral dilemmas as they dissect cadavers, confront police who assault their patients, and treat schizophrenics with pathologies similar to their own. Winner of the 2006 Giller Prize for fiction - the only debut work ever to have won the prestigious literary prize - Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures looks with rigorous honesty at the lives of doctors and their patients and illuminates a deeper understanding of the fears, choices, and temptations that face us all. “Vincent Lam’s book is amazing, beautiful, and painful. I cannot believe that a writer can emerge, so fully-formed and incisive, with his first book. This guy is a star.” - Sherman Alexie, bestselling author of The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven and Flight

From the Back Cover:

The most mundane events can quickly become life or death. At once riveting and precise, these stories are eye-opening accounts of what it means to be a doctor. Vincent Lam draws upon his insiderís perspective on the fears and frustrations of a world where challenges surge all around. Using scalpel-sharp prose, he delivers a shockingly realistic portrait of the medical profession. In the four stories included in this audiobook, William Johnston and Michael Scholar Jr. make Vincent Lamís characters thoroughly human with insightful detail, realistic dialogue, and expert narration.

About the Author:

Dr. Vincent Lam was born in London, Ontario, and studied medicine in Toronto where he is now an emergency physician. Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures was awarded the 2006 Giller Prize for fiction, making him the youngest writer ever to have won the prize. His work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, the National Post, and Carve. Lam’s family is from the expatriate Chinese community of Vietnam, and his first novel, a multigenerational family saga set in Saigon during the Vietnam War, is forthcoming from Weinstein Books. Lam lives with his family in Toronto.
