What books came into your house last week? I got a couple of interesting books:
On the Ragged Edge of Medicine: Doctoring Among the Dispossessed by Patricia Kullberg, published by OSU Press. This powerful collection of 15 patient vignettes was written by a doctor who worked on the urban front line, with the homeless and city poor.
Kinship of Clover by Ellen Meeropol, published by Red Hen Press. I'm not sure what to make of this one yet. The publisher's description starts: "He was nine when the vines first wrapped themselves around him and burrowed into his skin. Now a college botany major, Jeremy is desperately looking for a way to listen to the plants and stave off their extinction." Wow. How's that for creative?
