2.0 out of 5 stars A bit average, Nov. 14 2006
This review is from: Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures: Stories (Paperback)
This collection of short stories has some interesting moments, but the book is highly uneven, with some weak work towards the center that gets a bit better towards the end. This collection is not for readers who seek a memorable literary experience. The work is more akin to a reality TV show, and relies heavily on the drama that medicine affords gratis instead of literary virtuosity or masterful story telling.
