I am so pleased to introduce you to a wonderful book by a very talented writer. Luckily, I received an ARC of the book before Ramsey Hunt Syndrome took me to my knees several weeks ago, and I was able to read it. It is a wonderful, multi-layered story that I enjoyed very much.
I wish that I was not in so much pain when I look at a computer screen, so I could do the book justice with a full review. But my affected eye is not happy and is weeping on the keyboard, so I will just introduce you to:
By Amy Koppelman
The new novel by the author of “I Smile Back”, now a film starring Sarah Silverman. Amy Koppelman is a novelist of astonishing power, with a sly, dark voice, at once fearless and poetic. In Koppelman’s new novel, Dr. Susanna Seliger is a renowned psychiatrist who specializes in treatment-resistant depression. The most difficult cases come through her door, and Susa is always ready to discuss treatment options, medication, and symptom management but draws the line at engaging with feelings. A strict adherence to protocol keeps her from falling apart.
But her past is made present by one patient, Jim, whose struggles tear open Susa’s hastily stitched up wounds, revealing her latent feeling that she could have helped the people closest to her, especially her adored, cool, talented graffiti-artist brother. Spectacularly original, gorgeously unsettling,HESITATION WOUNDS is a novel that will sink deep and remain—like a persistent scar or a dangerous glow-in-the-dark memory.
