The New York Times writes that "the relationship between doctor and patient is hard enough to parse when both are in the same room. When one opts out, it becomes even harder. And of the gallons of ink spilled over the centuries in attempts at clarification, few efforts in recent memory lay out the frustrations and confusions and crystalline moments of grace better than Jason Karlawish, MD’s marvelous new book 'Open Wound,' a historical novel tracing the peculiar career of a 19th-century American doctor. Dr. Karlawish, a professor of Geriatrics and Medical Ethics and associate director of the Penn Memory Center, is well attuned to the overtones of his compelling story, from the graphic examples of the principles of autonomy and beneficence to the clear parallels between the rough American frontier and the primitive state of medical research." The New York Times' Science Times also speaks with Dr. Karlawish on their weekly podcast.
