A GREAT book about a Doctors journey dealing with the onset of AIDS living in a smalltown. A must read for anyone thinking of pursuing medicine or already doing so, as it fills in the stories of many patients we have the privilege of interacting with.

A very interesting personal-professional memoir about love, family, human connection, disease, passion, and courage. Full of grace and insight on the practice of medicine and the art of living, would recommend.
