Good Times and Doctor Olaf

Good Times, a paper out of my old home town Santa Cruz, ran a very nice review of Doctor O by Leslie Patrick:
"Dr. Olaf Van Schuler’s Brain" by Kirsten Menger-Anderson is a sensational first novel that masterfully intertwines stories of medical fantasia with the intriguing history of New York City. Spanning 342 years and 13 generations of New York medical men (and eventually women once the mid 19th century hit), "Dr. Olaf Van Schuler’s Brain" is a fascinating take on the usual breed of historical fiction. . . Menger-Anderson is in possession of a great literary skill.

To read the rest of the review: Kirsten Menger-Anderson's debut novel puts the mad back in science
