New York, NY, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1988. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. New York, NY, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1988. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Very Good/Good. New York, NY, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1988. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Very Good/Good. From Publishers Weekly In his most skillfully written novel to date, Segal ( Love Story , The Class ) tackles a timeworn but engrossing theme: the grueling education of doctors, and the toll exacted by their careers. As Segal sees it, many physicians are "wounded healers" who know that "to care is to crack" in this brutally competitive, sometimes poorly self-policed profession. When childhood friends Barney Livingston and Laura Castellano enter Harvard Medical School in 1958, they are soon physically and emotionally overwhelmed by mountains of demanding coursework, a classmate's suicide and the vivisection of clumsily anesthetized dogs. Later, Barney, a Manhattan psychiatrist, witnesses the heartwrenching suffering of mental patients at Bellevue Hospital, including his tragically misdiagnosed former basketball coach. Pediatrician Laura is harshly penalized by tyrannical superiors who resent her complaints about their conduct. A medical-school classmate, brilliant black surgeon Bennett Landsmann, encounters racism within and beyond the medical establishment. Seth Lazarus, another class member, faces murder charges for a mercy killing. With his usual facility, Segal spins a highly readable story that addresses the gravest, most pressing issues facing doctors today. 250,000 first printing; Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Writing with all the passion of Love Story and power of The Class, Erich Segal sweeps us into the lives of the Harvard Medical School's class of 1962.  His stunning novel reveals the making of doctors--what makes them tick, scheme, hurt . . . and love.  From the crucible of med school's merciless training through the demanding hours of internship and residency to the triumphs--and sometimes tragedies--beyond, Doctors brings to vivid life the men and women who seek to heal but who must first walk through fire.  At the novel's heart is the unforgettable relationship of Barney Livingston and Laura Castellano, childhood friends who separately find unsettling celebrity and unsatisfying love--until their friendship ripens into passion.  Yet even their devotion to each other, even their medical gifts may not be enough to save the one life they treasure above all others. Doctors --heartbreaking, witty, inspiring, and utterly, grippingly real--is a vibrant portrait that culminates in a murder, a trial . . . and a miracle.From the Paperback edition. contemporary,fiction,literary,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Bantam

[EAN: 9780553052947], Neubuch, [PU: Bantam Books], Fiction|General, Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Daemonomania", set in the same realm of infinite possibility as Aegypt (a New York Times Notable Book) and Love and Sleep, continues the tale of Rose Ryder, Rosie Rasmussen and her daughter Sam, and Pierce Moffett. They live, as we do, in a world where time, space, matter, the past and the future might undergo, now and then, certain nearly-cataclysmic transformations, seizures or spasms that usher in new ages. The last time the world passed through such a gateway -- in Elizabethan England -- magic was replaced by science. The world is now poised on the threshold of just such a transformation. Perhaps this time magic -- in a new and unimaginable form -- will return to us.
