Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Debut Novel ‘Monday Mornings’
Every time surgeons operate, they’re betting their skills can beat a brain tumor, a faulty heart valve, a clogged artery.
Sometimes, they’re wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secret meeting in all of medicine is the backdrop for Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s first novel coming out in March.
‘Monday Mornings‘ follows the lives of five surgeons as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M.
A practicing surgeon himself, Gupta provides a unique look inside the high-pressure world of medicine, and paints a vivid picture of the method by which surgeons often learn – through their mistakes.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta is also the author of ‘Cheating Death’, which hit the New York Times bestseller list, and ‘Chasing Life’, which made the New York Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. Combined, his books have sold over 100,000 copies.
Dr. Gupta is a practicing neurosurgeon at Emory University and Associate Chief of Service at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. He’s a columnist for Time magazine, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, and the host of the half-hour weekend show, ‘House Call with Dr. Sanjay Gupta.’ He is also a contributor to 60 Minutes and appears regularly on the CBS Evening News with.
