Title: InVerse Medicine

Voice Actor/Narrator: Didi


Genre:  Nonfiction, Health & Well Being, Medical, Patient Care, Physician & Patient


Book Blurb:


These are poems about conversations that we'd like to have with ourselves and with others when our bodies and minds are fraying...


There's struggle and triumph, loss and humanity within the pages of this eclectic collection of verse.


Here's what Readers have to say:


"[This] collection brings together the dilemmas doctors and clinicians face through the voices of poetry in a way that is quite extraordinarily moving. It is about intersections, beliefs, power, frailty and so much more." – Ruth


"Words from a doctor's heart. The touch-points. The soft, comforting words, the firmness of harsh realities. Acceptance of the inevitable. Or the frustrating answers that make no sense." – Ashish


"Some of the stories may sound unreal to those who haven't been to crowded public hospitals in large cities. A doctor's perspective beautifully captured. Most of the poems are short stories of amazing tales. If you read poetry or short stories, don't miss out on this one." - Wonchi Murry

Do you listen to audiobooks? Do you have a favorite? If you don’t listen to audiobooks, is there a particular reason why not?


I do listen to audiobooks – I find them particularly enjoyable when I am on the crosstrainer, or doing crochet. I don’t have a particular favorite, though. Too many favorites is more like it.

What makes this a must-listen audiobook?


The poems contained in this volume are conversations we could easily overlook in our rush to provide care.


Through poetry, I explore what it really means to be sick, and what it means to be a provider, or a caregiver.


These poems are for people who have ever been unwell, and for those who have never been sick; for people who love poetry, and for those who wonder and doubt; and finally, for people who think the healthcare system is fatally flawed, and for those who serve in the system with dedication and love.

Author Biography:


I trained as an ophthalmologist, and have spent the happiest years of my life as a medical teacher and an eye surgeon. Rediscovering the humanities, especially poetry, and introducing them into health professions education has added a valuable dimension to my understanding of illness and health.
