About this product
- DescriptionNow a major motion picture: Noah Gordon's beloved masterwork--read by millions in thirty-five countries In eleventh-century London, a child holds the hand of his dying mother and is terrified, aware something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole becomes a fast-talking swindler, peddling a worthless medicine. But as he matures, his strange gift--an acute sensitivity to impending death--never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer.Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world's most rewned physician, Avicenna. How the woman who is his great love struggles against her only rival--medicine--makes a riveting modern classic.The Physician is the first book in Noah Gordon's Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which continues with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.
- Author BiographyNoah Gordon has had outstanding international success. The Physician, soon to be a motion picture, has been called a modern classic, and booksellers at the Madrid Book Fair voted it one of the 10 best-loved books of all time. Shaman was awarded the James Fenimore Cooper Prize for historical fiction. Both of these books, and five of the author's other novels--The Rabbi, The Death Committee, The Jerusalem Diamond, Matters of Choice, and The Winemaker--are published in digital formats by Barcelona eBooks and Open Road Integrated Media. Gordon's novel, The Last Jew, will also be published digitally in the near future. He lives outside of Boston with his wife, Lorraine Gordon.
