9781948226547Vikram ParalkarAdultFictionProseUSA1/14/2020
In this inventive novel charged with philosophical gravity and sly humor, Vikram Paralkar takes on the practice of medicine in a time when the right to health care is frequently challenged. Encompassing social criticism and magically unreal drama, NIGHT THEATER is a first novel as satisfying for its existential inquiry as for its enthralling story of a skeptical physician who arrives at a greater understanding of life's miracles.
