I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Physician

Cover of The Physician.

One of my earliest historical fiction books, and I loved it to pieces. It seemed so real, and so unflinching, and I dreamt about it a lot. Now I know that in many ways, it follows genre conventions and Gordon’s research is โ€ฆ middling and in the service of drama. Oh well โ€“ I can’t ask for more than enjoyment at the time of reading.

Interestingly, his Wikipedia page mentions that Gordon is much better known in Germany and Spain than in his native USA.
