Item description for The Best of the Bellevue Literary Review by Danielle Ofri & Sherwin B. Nuland...

"A kaleidoscope of creativity . . . unsentimental and sometimes unpredictable."-Journal of the American Medical Association

Founded just six years ago, Bellevue Literary Review is already widely recognized as a rare forum for emerging and celebrated writers-among them Julia Alvarez, Raphael Campo, Rick Moody, and Abraham Verghese-on issues of health and healing. Gathered here are poignant and prizewinning stories, essays, and poems, the voices of patients and those who care for them, which form the journal's remarkable dialogue on "humanity and the human experience."

Danielle Ofri, MD, author of Incidental Findings and Singular Intimacies, is the editor in chief of Bellevue Literary Review. She lives in New York City.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Best of the Bellevue Literary Review?

Brilliant, tragic, familiar, yet soothing  Jul 21, 2008
I would give a copy of this to everyone I know, and place it in every medical waiting room or attorney's office serving those with disability or injury. Articles and books by physicians, patients, and the family members and friends who care for injured or ill family members and friends appear everywhere. Best of the Bellevue Literary Review includes personal essays, poetry, and fiction by known and emerging authors and poets. Bellevue Literary Review, the magazine, is published by Bellevue Literary Press out of the New York University School of Medicine. I teach world literature, and also read literary and other magazines as fast as they are published. I have also cared for ill family members and others for most of my life. I rate Best of the Bellevue Literary Review at the top of the list both in the quality of the literature, and in the message conveyed.
Profoundly Moving  Apr 20, 2008
A 2008 anthology of ~90 short stories, essays, and poems drawn from the NYU School of Medicine's semi-annual literary journal.

Each entry deals in some way with illness or coping, although sometimes minimally and often peripherally. There are doctors and hospitals, but most of the pieces are about people in ordinary community. Combined, they threaten toward darkness. Yet in the midst there's a hilarious, satirical fantasy, and poems that leave me with a "Wow!"

All of the writing is first-rate -- after nearly every entry, I found myself flipping to the contributor bios in the back to learn more about the writer. Highly recommended.
