About meI am a pediatric hospitalist (inpatient pediatrician) based in Atlanta, but I am originally from the Northeast (northern New Jersey and suburban Philadelphia). I primarily enjoy world literature, including literature written by immigrants to North America and Europe, and nonfictional and fictional works about medicine.

I'm participating in the 75 Books Challenge and Club Read again this year. I created the Booker Prize group in 2011, and I plan to read all of the longlisted novels in 2015.

Books I've Read in 2015:

1. Clock Without Hands by Carson McCullers (review)
2. Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward (review)
3. A Golden Age by Tahmima Anam
4. A Distant Father by Antonio Skármeta
5. Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively
6. The Calcutta Chromsome by Amitav Ghosh

7. In the City By the Sea by Kamila Shamsie
8. The Work: A Search for a Life That Matters by Wes Moore
9. I Called Him Necktie by Milena Michiko Flašar
10 Blackballed: The Black Vote and US Democracy by Darryl Pinckney

11. Grady Baby: A Year in the Life of Atlanta's Grady Hospital by Jerry Gentry
12. The Sellout by Paul Beatty
