FAVORITE DOCTOR STORIES

Materia medica, in all forms, this collects from both older writers and current, a pleasing variety of short stories and pieces. Included are Berton Roueche's tracer of trichinosis; an account of Tom Dooley's hospital in Laos; Wilfred Grenfell's northern overexposure, Elith Cavell's execution; Anthony Wynne's classic crime -- The Oxpian Bees. From Hawthorne to Dreiser to Cornella Otis Skinner, there is something here for almost every taste in the general category.
