About Love, Sanity, or Medical School:
As a medical student secretly turned gonzo journalist, I capture the progressive erosion of well-being and sense of altruism that happens to future doctors during the most vitriolic year of medical school: third year. Subtly typing away on my blue iPad mini, I record the entire year in real time as it unfolds around me. Each chapter in my nonfiction novel is a rotation in a different medical specialty, spread throughout different hospitals, within a small Midwest City.
