It's a book about learning to be a doctor. All I remember now is that he works at an asylum with folks who want to self-harm. They found some horribly creative ways to carry out that self-harm which I won't repeat here. I wouldn't mind forgetting those, really.
Remember back when my website got zapped for a few weeks? The good news is that it was mostly backed up. The bad news is that my draft blog posts weren't backed up. Maybe I had a wordier book report prepped? Anyhow, now it's months since I read this book and I don't remember so much. And the part that I do remember was pretty horrifying. Sorry!
