A Richard Selzer Reader: Blood and Ink

A Richard Selzer Reader Blood and Ink is a career spanning collection including major short stories and essays by the renowned doctor author In the s while practicing as a general surgeon and teaching surgery at the Yale School of Medicine Richard Selzer began publishing unique creative work in magazines such as Harper s and Esquire By when he retired as a physician to devote himself completely to writing Selzer was already recognized as a pioneer in the field of medical humanities When he died in as the author of books his influence was acknowledged by a younger generation of doctor writers like Abraham Verghese and Atul Gawande br Selzer s unusual style fuses scientific and poetic language Drawing on favorite readings from the King James Bible to the tales of Edgar Allen Poe he used this style to convey a sense of awe at the beauty and complexity of the human body even in the midst of suffering While describing himself as an atheist Selzer always searched for sacramental moments of courtesy courage and grace in medical encounters Because he often looked critically at the failure of doctors to regard the full humanity of their patients Selzer s work has become required reading in many medical training programs br A Richard Selzer Reader includes several of the author s most famous essays and stories as well as two dozen selections that have not been collected in his previous books Chronologically the material ranges from apprenticeship stories as far back as a high school composition to two odd self portraits that remained unpublished at the time of Selzer s death Topically the material ranges from meditations on the body and on human mortality to reflections on both medicine and writing as serious vocations Along the way Selzer celebrates the work of other doctor writers like Thomas Browne and Anton Chekhov and in a series of previously unpublished diary entries he discusses the joys of nature art and family as bulwarks against the difficulties of growing old
