If you love medical history (& I know you do because you follow me), then you'll love @bschillace. Her last book MR HUMBLE & DR BUTCHER is one of my favorites. It's the true story of a surgeon's quest to perform a "head transplant." Check it (& her) out:      fuente

The Gilded Edge
Two Audacious Women and the Cyanide Love Triangle That Shook America
Catherine Prendergast - 2021-10-12
Calificación de Goodreads
This engaging and poignant true story follows the lives of two women living in earthquake-ravaged San Francisco and the Monterey Peninsula during the late Gilded Age. They each pursue different ambitions: Nora, a brilliant writer, seeks artistic recognition and refuge among the celebrated counterculturalists, while Carrie, a long-suffering wife, seeks stability through her marriage. Their paths cross when Nora finds herself in a desperate situation and takes refuge with the Sterlings, launching a love triangle that ends in tragedy. This forgotten chapter raises important questions about literary history and portrays America at a turning point in the early 1900s. This is a must-read for anyone intrigued by stories of strong women and historic American progressivism.

Cementerio de animales
Stephen King - 2014-05-13 (publicado por primera vez en 1983)
Calificación de Goodreads
Un hermoso día de agosto, el doctor Louis Creed llega con su esposa Rachel, sus hijos Eileen y Gage y el gato Church a su nuevo hogar, una gran casa situada en las afueras de Ludlow, Nueva Inglaterra. El lugar parece tranquilo y lo bastante alejado del ajetreo urbano. Detrás de la casa de los Creed hay incluso un campo de enterramientos, en donde los niños del lugar han sepultado a sus animales durante generaciones: el Cementerio de animales. Pero enseguida empieza la pesadilla... al menos para Louis. En su primer día de trabajo en el centro médico de la Universidad de Maine, le llevan el cuerpo horriblemente mutilado del estudiante Victor Pascow. El joven trata de advertir al doctor Creed acerca del lugar situado detrás del Cementerio de animales, usado en tiempos antiguos por los indios MicMac e impregnado de un espíritu diabólico. El gato Church muere atropellado por un camión y Judd Crandall, un anciano vecino, persuade a Louis para que entierre al animalito en el cementerio de animales. Con ello, el doctor invoca fuerzas ocultas que es mejor no perturbar, y cuando la tragedia hiere a la familia Creed, Louis se embarca en una terrorífica aventura con consecuencias que van más allá de la comprensión humana... o de la cordura.

I'm watching an old interview with Stephen King. The first horror book I ever read was Pet Sematary and it had a lasting impact on me. Say what you want about King, but he tells a damn good story. What's your favorite? My husband @TealCartoons drew this caricature of him for me.      fuente

Through detailed patient records and personal accounts, the book showcases the hospital's impact on the development of modern medical practice and the emotional impact of facial reconstruction on patients.

@PippyG82 He wrote an excellent book called Faces from the Front. It's rather academic though - and mine will be narrative nonfiction (reads more like a novel). So hopefully you'll feel it is a different slant on a familiar subject.      fuente
