Dr. Donald Hodder has woven tales of joy and sorrow, humour and fulfillment into this compelling memoir. He practised family medicine for over forty-five years, all of it in his native Newfoundland. During his career, he kept many notebooks detailing his experiences. These became the foundation for this book. In studied prose and lilting verse, with integrity and compassion, he interlaces autobiographical material with social commentary on people and happenings in his life. He witnessed a broad spectrum of human conditions: the mundane, the miraculous, the physical, the psychological, and the social. He feels immensely honoured to have shared in the most intimate aspects of daily life with thousands of patients for so long. He is, at times, absolutely serious, skillfully witty, and hilariously funny. You are invited to sit at his table of memories and be entertained, enlightened, and enriched. Enjoy ...
