It's not easy to be a female patient," writes nurse practitioner and poet Cortney Davis. "Because most of our reproductive organs are internal, even routine examinations and procedures in the field of women's health are uncommonly invasive, reminding us of our vulnerability." I Knew a Woman is a compelling and unusual book. Sometimes it's like a novel, with Davis unraveling the stories of four women (composites of actual patients) whom she sees at a clinic. At other times, it's Davis's own health memoir, including the invasive and inappropriately sexual exams her first doctor performed when she was a teenager, and details of her breast biopsy. We learn about women's health (Pap tests, ultrasound, and biopsies, for example) and women's bodies from the perspective of a compassionate, intuitive woman whose work is examining women all day. Davis is a poet, able to convey details with nuance and surprise. "The practitioners work their hands so fast, they blur like running water... Baby X looks as fragile and evanescent as spun sugar," she writes of an attempt to save a premature, heroin-addicted baby. And of her own profession, she writes about what nurses do best: "touching, listening, observing, interpreting, teaching, guiding, comforting, waiting, remembering." I Knew a Woman is a fascinating book by a talented writer and a skilled, intuitive nurse. --Joan Price general,health fitness and dieting,politics and social sciences,sociology,women's health,women's studies Women's Health, Ballantine Books

"I cannot ignore the reality of the body, its glorious beginnings and its subtle endings," writes Cortney Davis in this intimate and startlingly original account of her work at a women''s clinic. A poet and nurse-practitioner with twenty five years'' experience, Davis reveals the beauty of the body''s workings by unfolding the lives of four patients who struggle with its natural cycles and unexpected surprises: pregnancy and childbirth, illness and recovery, sexual dysfunction and sexual joy. An abundance of solid medical information imbues every graceful line. Davis''s eternal question to herself is: How do you help someone to not merely survive but flourish? In this compassionate and expansive book, she provides a template. I Knew a Woman will alter your perception of the humanity of medicine and the ordinary miracle of our physical selves.From the Hardcover edition.
