What Disturbs Our Blood
A Multi-Generational Case History of a Toronto Medical Family
James FitzGerald, author of the award-winning memoir, What Disturbs Our Blood: A Son's Quest to Redeem the Past, charts the careers of his grandfather and father -- both Canadian medical pioneers –and unearths long-buried family secrets. Exploring the fine line between high professional achievement and mental illness, he argues that the stigmatization of addiction and suicide can intensify when the patient happens to be a doctor.
