A fierce book, intense with craft. This doctor-poet can really stitch words together: tight, unadorned and razor sharp tailored to fit brilliantly. – Dr Robyn Rowland, Australian Poetry Centre
This is fluent, well crafted poetry but it is not always comfortable as Leah Kaminsky takes us on a journey with her father fleeing from Poland to escape the holocaust, then as a doctor struggling to keep her commitment to her patients, and finally to Haifa, raising children under constant danger from rockets and suicide bombers.
The Pen and the Stethoscope is a unique collection of fiction and non-fiction by doctor – writers that gives us a fascinating look behind the doctor’s mask and gets inside the minds of those who deal with enormous existential issues and traumatic situations on a daily basis.
