Summary
Culminating six years of Pulitzer Prize -- winning reporting, physician Sheri Fink reconstructs five days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled amid the chaos of Hurricane Katrina. In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are in America for the impact of large-scale disasters.
