Synopsis

Synopsis

Bruno Sachs is a country doctor who makes house calls and feels deeply for his patients. There are broken bones, unwanted pregnancies, people without the will to live, a friend dying of cancer. His pity for his fellow creatures is both his motivating force and his own untreatable condition. Among the deaths, love affairs, and small town gossip, a love story emerges at the heart of the novel-between Dr. Sachs and a young woman upon whom he once performed an abortion.
The Case of Dr. Sachs is a novel filled with voices of silent suffering and arias of quiet joy, and one dedicated to the notion that literature, like medicine, can save lives.
