Literary Companion to Medicine

Portada
Richard Gordon
Macmillan, 2002 - 444 páginas
From the author of The Alarming History of Medicine comes the perfect gift and reference book for doctors and medical students: a unique and entertaining anthology devoted to literature about medicine. A sampling of the writing in The Literary Companion to Medicine includes: the unforgettable Bob Sawyer of Charles Dickens, Emile Zola's send-up of Lourdes, Thomas Mann's vanished world of Swiss TB sanatoria, Brillat-Savarin's ironic table-talk of nineteenth-century slimmers, James Boswell's disorderly sex life, and the hilarity of the Parisian music hall star Le Petomane.
