By Sheri Fink
Pulitzer Prize-winning author and physician Sheri Fink’s landmark investigation reconstructs five days in a post-Katrina New Orleans hospital, revealing just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink asks complicated questions about health care, bioethics, race, and human nature in crisis.
“Sheri Fink is one of the best medical journalists working in the United States today, and Five Days at Memorial stands as evidence of her ability to tell a ‘can’t-put-down’ story and also her ability to delve into the troubled and sometimes heartbreaking state of medical care in this country. . . ”
—Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner’s Handbook
SHERI FINK’s reporting has won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Magazine Award among other journalism prizes. Fink, a former relief worker in disaster and conflict zones, received her MD and PhD from Stanford University. Her first book, War Hospital, is about medical professionals under siege during the genocide in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
