Summary
"The healing powers of speech, of touch, of empathy and the erotic, of love itself - these are some of the themes of Rafael Campo's deeply humanistic work, as he writes not just of his attempts to heal, but of how his patients have healed him."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout, he uncovers the truths of his own passions and fears, of the tragic flaws in health care, and of his education and life as primary-care doctor, poet, Latino, and gay man within the medical establishment."--BOOK JACKET
