The Big Free describes the medical humor and drama in the life of one of the first women surgeons in the busiest trauma surgery program in New Orleans in 1982. The excitement and dark humor of the inner city emergency room is the background for this coming of age story.
Only a great storyteller with inside knowledge can capture the intimacy of the lives of doctors, nurses, and their patients. Readers will laugh and cry and long to know more of the spirited, young, female-doctor protagonist.
This book is available in paperback ($17.95).
