Review of God's Hotel

A review of God's Hotel by Lissa Muscatine, co-owner of Politics & Prose Bookstore, Washington, D.C. as part of National Health Blog Post Month (#NHBPM):
In God's Hotel (Riverhead, $27.95), her evocative, unvarnished, and brilliant writing debut, doctor and medical historian Victoria Sweet traces her evolution as a medical practitioner caring for society's poorest and most down-trodden. Her experiences as a physician at one of America's last almshouses, along with her studies of pre-modern medicine, challenge us to consider more honestly how the essence of diagnosing, treating, and caring for patients is too often devalued by modern medicine. Told through the stories of her patients, God's Hotel is at once deeply personal, highly entertaining, and above all, important.

Politics & Prose has the book in stock in hardcover and as Google eBook.   Search the title, add to your cart, and voila!
