Now in paperback: Twelve interwoven stories follow four young and ambitious doctors as they move from the challenges of medical school to the intense world of emergency rooms, evacuation missions, and terrifying new viruses. They fall in love as they study for their exams, face moral dilemmas as they split open cadavers, confront police who rough up their patients, and treat schizophrenics with pathologies similar to their own. Winner of the prestigious Giller Prize, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures marks the arrival of a deeply humane and preternaturally gifted writer.
