Bedside: The Art of Medicine [Hardcover] Michael A. Lacombe


This collection of stories, though fiction, is a rich depiction of Maine people–doctors, nurses, patients, and families–and their stories ring true in every sense. The cover photograph is of a “left-handed house” referred to in the story “Left-handed Favor,” of the Biddeford-Saco general practitioner who used a secret code with his office and local pharmacist to help indigent patients.
