Author Series: A History of Present Illness
A HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS by Anna DeForest
From Being Mortal by Atul Gawande to When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, books by doctors have given us a glimpse into the fragility and wonder of the human body and spirit. Joining this strong tradition of books, we are excited to share with you the debut by palliative care physician Anna DeForest: A HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS (Little, Brown; August 16, 2022). Staggeringly powerful in its brevity, DeForest’s novel shares insight into the complex world of hospitals, a world many of us enter as patients but struggle to understand.
