Didn’t Get Frazzled by David Z Hirsch

Seth Levine didn’t get frazzled – not during first year medical school parts-naming exam, nor while examining his own professor’s vulva for a second year OB/GYN class, nor during rounds with a nemesis intern his third year.  Or, maybe he’s just covering up how frazzled he is inside, as he and his girlfriend break up.  Well-supported by a spectrum of friends — ranging from uptight Fran and competitive Margaret, to detached Sujay and laid-back Jeff and Bea, to sexy Michelle and, finally, effervescent Abby — Seth learns to receive as well as give care.  He admits to a patient-cum-confidant, “we always expect our patients to thanks us because we work hard to help them, but this works both ways.  You helped me every bit as much as I helped you.  Probably a whole lot more.  I wish there was more we could do for you, more I could do for you,” (289).  After a climactic scene in an infamous club soon following this sincere encounter, Seth begins to get to the heart of his love-life struggles.  He applies his good rapport with patients to himself.  Laugh with him, cry with him, sling hammers with him; Seth will keep you busy and entertained during this 332 page New York City adventure.author site
