Down From Troy
A Doctor Comes of AgeBook - 1992
Surgeon and writer Richard Selzer looks back upon his upbringing in Troy, New York during the Great Depression. The memoir deals largely with Selzer's struggle to please his physician father, who wanted him to be a doctor and his mother (a singer) who wanted him to write. His sometimes grim tale also describes the abysmal conditions endured by his father's poor and working-class patients. This is a reprint of a 1992 book originally published by Morrow.
