In House of Babel (Babels Hus), the experience of a heart attack victim illustrates the depersonalization and outrageous cost of medical treatment today. Formerly a doctor, P.C. Jersild brings a powerful realism to his picture of a modern hospital. His literary gifts are apparent in a narrative that maintains dramatic intensity while it suggests solutions to an urgent social problem. This edition marks the novel's first appearance in English.
