Description

Consisting of 12 interwoven stories, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures follows the lives of four young medical students and physicians — Ming, Fitz, Sri, and Chen. Brought lovingly to life, these characters show the reader the realities of the medical world with sometimes startling results. The stories explore the characters and their relationships with their patients and with each other. "Take All of Murphy" looks at an autopsy in a new and thought-provoking way; "A Long Migration" examines modern medicine versus traditional medicine; and "Code Clock" details one character's self-doubt. It is guaranteed that the reader will never think of a doctor in the same way once they"ve experienced this book.

Editorial Reviews

"Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures radiates the confidence you expect from a man whose other job is to make stalled hearts start. The advantage of fiction? Here, even the medical failures come to life, vividly." — Globe and Mail


"Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures is a satisfying, engrossing read, partly because of the intrinsically fascinating subject matter, but also because of Lam's patient characterizations and understanding of the human heart."? — National Post


"[A] compelling first book of fiction. It adds up to a running start at a high-voltage literary career." — Toronto Star
