Synopsis: In House of Babel (Babels Hus), the experience of a heart attack victim illustrates the depersonalization and outrageous cost of medical treatment today. Formerly a doctor, P.C. Jersild brings a powerful realism to his picture of a modern hospital. His literary gifts are apparent in a narrative that maintains dramatic intensity while it suggests solutions to an urgent social problem. This edition marks the novel's first appearance in English.
About the Author: Joan Tate, who lives in England, has written over a hundred books, and has translated as many, during a notable career. Leif Sjöberg, author of the afterword, is a professor of Scandinavian studies and comparative literature at SUNY, Stony Brook.
