Medical practitioners are key actors in many well-known works of fiction and literature, presenting a vital insight into the social, medical, scientific and ethical concerns of their authors and readers. However, medical professionals are often left little time to explore such cultural perceptions of their profession, and by extension themselves, despite the extent to which the views of their patients and society have been - and still are - shaped by them. Doctors in Fiction explores and analyzes representations of medical practitioners in fiction, encompassing classic and contemporary literature, popular fiction, and authors from many nations and traditions. These include among others: Albert Camus A* Anton Checkhov A* Robertson Davies A* Graham Greene A* George Eliot A* Ian McEwan A* F. Scott Fitzgerald A* Jaroroslav Hasek A* Henrik Ibsen A* John Irving A* Patrick O'Brien A* Boris Pasternak A* Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn This book will be of interest to those with an interest in the medical humanities, and to students of cultural history and literature. It will also be of particular interest to medical practitioners of all kinds who enjoy literature and wish to understand and reflect upon wider perceptions of their profession.

An amazing and fascinating look at neurological conditions in fiction and film Classical and modern literature is full of patients with interesting neurological, cognitive, or psychiatric diseases, often including detailed and accurate descriptions, which suggests the authors were inspired by observations of real people. In many cases these literary portrayals of diseases even predate their formal identification by medical science. Fictional literature encompasses nearly all kinds of disorders affecting the nervous system, with certain favorites such as memory loss and behavioral syndromes. There are even unique observations that cannot be found in scientific and clinical literature because of the lack of appropriate studies. Not only does literature offer a creative and humane look at disorders of the brain and mind, but just as authors have been inspired by medicine and real disorders, clinicians have also gained knowledge from literary depictions of the disorders they encounter in their daily practice. This book provides an amazing and fascinating look at neurological conditions, patients, and doctors in literature and film in a way which is both nostalgic and novel.

An anthology that addresses the rapidly changing nature of rural medicine in the United States "A beautiful literary collection that tells of today's country doctor, somewhat removed from our romantic black-bag image of days gone by but still fulfilling an essential need in caring for spread-out populations. At times, with today's advances in technology, medicine in rural America looks very much like it does in America's cities, but the variety of practices is enormous. The Country Doctor Revisited captures not only the trials and tribulations of medicine but also the satisfaction and the extraordinary rewards that come to those who embrace such a practice."---Abraham Verghese, M.D., author of Cutting for Stone and My Own Country "This book will irrevocably change the traditional view of the country doctor. The writings in this collection are as wildly diverse and surprising as the rapidly changing field of rural medicine. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand the full spectrum of America's health care system in the twenty-first century."---Danielle Ofri, M.D., Ph.D., author of Singular Intimacies: Becoming a Doctor at Bellevue and Editor-in-Chief of the Bellevue Literary Review "The Country Doctor Revisited is a fine achievement. Purporting to be an overview of the practice of medicine in rural areas, it is a splendid portrait of the practice of medicine everywhere. The special conditions that prevail in the countryside as opposed to the cities are examined, and each of these is illustrated by a case history that is as compelling as it is informative. It is presented in a highly readable form that would be accessible to the general public as well as to the deliverers of health care. I recommend it most highly."---Richard Selzer, M.D., surgeon and author "In this collection of stories and poems are some real gems that offer glimpses of the magic of rural practice and give some idea of why a health professional might forfeit the high salaries and prestigious positions of an urban or suburban specialist for the privilege of becoming a meaningful part of the tapestry of rural life. We experience tragedy and joy. Above all we see the extraordinary richness of practicing medicine in the often forgotten corners of America."---David Hilfiker, M.D., family physician and author
