Every time surgeons operate, they’re betting their skills are better than the brain tumor, the faulty heart valve, the fractured femur. Sometimes they’re wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This novel offers an extraordinary peek behind the curtain at what is considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine.

Monday Mornings follows the lives of five surgeons at Chelsea General as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. It is on Monday mornings that reflection and introspection occurs, usually in private. It is Monday Mornings that provides a unique look at the real method in which surgeons learn—through their mistakes. It is Monday Mornings when, if you’re lucky, you have a chance at redemption.

Quotes & Awards

  • Monday Mornings launches off the page like a thoroughbred out of the gates…Gupta has created a group of unforgettable characters and placed them in situations in the fictional Chelsea General that feel all too real. But hospitals are, after all, Gupta’s turf; his insights into the craft of surgery combined with vivid storytelling make Monday Mornings a gripping and wonderful read right down to the wire.”

    Abraham Verghese, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Narrator Christian Rummel gives this book a fast-paced, dramatic reading that makes it both compelling and entertaining. He effectively uses his deep, authoritative, nasal-tinged voice to portray the doctors as they see themselves.”


  • “You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to write a novel, but with Monday Mornings, readers will be glad one did.”


  • “Anyone who enjoys medical fiction should like this novel…Gupta keeps his numerous characters and their intermingled lives and crises in play and convinces readers to care about each one.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Holly | 2/18/2014

    " I liked this book very much though I'll admit to really enjoying medical shows on television as well. The minute I finished this book I realized why I liked it...it read like it was a more educated version of the show, Grey's Anatomy. The characters are likable and interesting. All have something to offer and yet are certainly flawed. Their strengths (as medical professionals) and weaknesses (as human beings) are revealed through their responsibilities at the hospital that's the center of the novel. This is Sanjay Gupta's first foray into fiction and it was very enjoyable. "

    " The ER Department of Chelsea General is busy. This book follows the neurosurgeons. We learn of their cases and their personal lives in this fun read. We get to hear about their M&M meetings, meetings only doctors attend, after a patient has died. "

    " It was an ok book. At times it got too much off track , some situations were contradicting. I did finish it but it was not a page turner. "
