“A compelling portrait of working with people whose stories cry out to be told.“
—Paul Collins, author of Not Even Wrong: A Father’s Journey Into the Lost History of Autism and
Edgar Allan Poe: The Fever Called Living

“A remarkable account of a shadowed part of Portland that we generally do our best to ignore
and forget; a deft and honest account of a doctor’s years among the poor and broken and
forgotten of Oregon’s biggest city; an admirably unadorned and unegotisticalbook of witness
and even celebration of Oregonians dealing with terrible illness, loneliness,and duress.”
—Brian Doyle, author of Mink River and The Wet Engine: Exploring the Mad Wild Miracle of the Heart
