Praise for The House of God

"The raunchy, troubling, and hilarious novel that turned into a cult phenomenon. Singularly compelling...brutally honest."--The New York Times "Bawdy, blistering...this is Catch-22 with stethoscopes."--Cosmopolitan "Wonderfully wild, ribald, erotic, bitter, the same spirit as Catch-22."--The Seattle Times "A wildly funny, sad, laugh-out-loud, frightening, outrageous, thought-provoking, moving book...a story of modern medicine rarely, if ever, told."--The Houston Chronicle "Does for the practice of medicine what Catch-22 and M*A*S*H did for the practice of warfare."--The Newark Star-Ledger "Mordantly funny, brilliantly ironic...A writer of outstanding substance and style."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
