“The book, is much more than a story about AIDS care...Czerweic tackles patient/provider relationships, boundaries, hospital struggles, the role of art in medicine and healing, but most profoundly: death and dying.”
The Editors of the Bellevue Literary Review invite you to: Finding Home: Family & Connections -- A Reading from the Bellevue Literary Review Monday, November 27, 2017 | 6pm WITH READINGS BY: Perri Klass, Daniel Pearce, Krysta Rodriguez and Jason Schneiderman
"Several threads tie together this ambitious, beautifully digressive reflection on eros and logos in the experience of illness and the conduct of medicine and health care, which takes into account what a complex striation of cultural legacies, social and political pressures, and beliefs go into both."
"Eric Kandel, a neuroscientist and Nobel Prize winner, has an abiding interest in how art can inform his primary work in brain science, especially as both art and science can be understood through reductionism."
"Read as a kind of travelogue penned by a terminally ill immigrant, Another Country’s dominant themes, which grow increasingly complex throughout the course of the novel, include social class and patient alterity (or ‘otherness’)."
"Oshinsky’s affection for Bellevue as an institution, for its physicians and for its hallowed place in the history of New York City shines throughout making the book both exciting and relevant for the modern reader."
