  •  Just for the record, Gawande is a man, but I (2+ / 0-)

    think it's quite cool to assume that the beautiful intelligent essay by an accomplished professional is from a woman.

    If you read and liked his New Yorker essay (where he contributes regularly) I highly recommend his (2002 National Book Award finalist) "Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science." His book (and others, to be fair), lost out to Robert Caro's "Master of the Senate."

    I have to say, if Caro's book had never been written, we'd have one biography less of Johnson  (however accomplished), but if Gawande's book had never been written that would have been a real loss. It's suspenseful, lively, and engaging. I was riveted.

    Cheers.
