Annotation: A young doctor uses the short story form to render up moving accounts of her years as a resident and intern. As Dr. Transue says, she found time to write to help her "guard against burnout" by "listening to my patients and to my feelings as I interacted with them." Through the skillful mastery of both dialogue and narrative, the author dramatizes her healing experiences, honestly revealing her emotions as she struggles with what it means to be a caring, sensitive physician.
