Atul Gawande's Writing

Whenever you ask me about books and articles that interpreters should read, I come up with a blank. This morning, though, there was an article in the “New York Times” about Atul Gawande, a surgeon whose essays I have been reading in “The New Yorker” for years. I love them because they look at medicine in a human and philosophical way. I find them very easy to read — because the language is clear and there is a story — but not simplistic, particularly because they look at imperfection.
