Through the eyes of Fitz, Ming, Chen, and Sri, Vincent Lam finds conflict - and humanity - in the most surprising moments. Together these doctors test the boundaries of intimacy as they cope with exam pressure, weigh moral dilemmas as they dissect cadavers, confront police who assault their patients, and treat schizophrenics with pathologies similar to their own.

Winner of the 2006 Giller Prize for fiction - the only debut work ever to have won the prestigious literary prize - Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures looks with rigorous honesty at the lives of doctors and their patients and illuminates a deeper understanding of the fears, choices, and temptations that face us all.

    " This was a fascinating novel written by a physician about physicians. It reads more like short stories versus a novel. I am not sure that the public would be reassured that their lives are in competent hands on completely this book. "

    " Funny story about this one. I didn't notice it was 'stories' and was wondering what kept happening to all the characters after each 'chapter.' Ooops! The stories had a solid, ell-developed feel to them and focused on some of the same characters. Good stories. I just really wanted to find out what happened to them! (Some others in my book club also really wanted to find out what happened to all the characters.) "

    " I could not put this book down. One story is a bit weak, but the rest were fascinating. "
