Monday Mornings by Sanjay Gupta

New on our shelves: New York Times bestselling author Dr Sanja Gupta takes the reader into the drama of a hospital setting.

Here's a review by Clara53 on LibraryThing -

I expected nothing less from multi-talented Sanjay Gupta - CNN's chief medical correspondent and the author of 2 non-fiction books, as well as a practicing neurosurgeon and, now (!), an accomplished fiction writer. For me, the appeal in this book was in its objectivity and in restoring respect to medical profession at a time when one often hears cynical and narrow-minded remarks to the effect that doctors are just money-making machines... Mr. Gupta certainly drew from his own experience as a neurosurgeon - thus deep insight into the lives and personalities of his protagonists doctors, describing them just as they are - human beings with strong principles and incredible knowledge and skills, yet also prone to mistakes and faults like anybody else, except in their case mistakes can cost lives and lead to unimaginable soul-searching and doubt in one's abilities. An excellent debut novel, I hope he writes more.
