A splendid blend of social issues, family drama, and women's fiction, Bedside Manners by Heather Frimmer is a tightly woven story that explores the relationship between mother and daughter and how tragedy can change the way we approach both work and life.
Today I have the privilege of chatting with fellow physician Heather Frimmer about her newly-released debut novel, Bedside Manners (SparkPress, October 2018). A radiologist specializing in breast imaging, Heather uses her medical knowledge to create fictional windows into the world of medicine.
A how-to guide, a psychological thriller and a soul searching debut round out my three picks to suit whatever mood you’re in.
I planned to be a doctor from when I was a young child until the end of my junior year in college, when I made the crazy switch from being pre-med to being pre-law. While it was the right decision for me, I think there's a small part of me that clings to a picture of me wearing a white coat.
Joyce Novak has a lot of positive things in her life, including her daughter Marnie's upcoming wedding and start to her medical career. She soon receives the news that she has breast cancer, and the treatments put her in the role of patient rather than caregiver.
At the most recent BookCon in New York City, I had the pleasure of sitting next to Heather Frimmer (and her adorable, precocious son, Jonah) at the Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel panel.
I’m happy to share my chat with Heather in celebration of her big day. I was honored to have read BEDSIDE MANNERS early to blurb it. And now, let’s meet Heather.
