Selected for the 2002 Pearl Poetry Prize by Lisa Glatt, this award-winning collection recounts physician Richard M. Berlin's lifelong love affair with medicine. From his youthful dreams of saving his gravely ill father to the long years of training that eventually lead to his chosen field of psychiatry, Berlin offers a rare, poignant glimpse into one doctor's world through poems that are honest and unflinching, gentle and brutal at once.
