Product description

Review

"Potent.... The Waiting Room is both haunted, and haunting."--Geraldine Brooks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March and The Secret Chord

"An assured debut.... Compelling, moving and memorable."--Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project

"A sharp novel.... Explores intergenerational trauma with approachable simplicity."--Ilana Masad, Slate

"Vivid, riveting, authentic with emotion and conflict."--Jerome Groopman, M.D.

"Kaminsky's prose is deft and delicate, and this novel tackles the haunting of the Holocaust with a tough and remarkably unsentimental gaze."--MJ Hyland, Man Booker Prizer shortlisted author of Carry Me Down

"The Waiting Room is a moving and riveting story of a woman perched between the shadow of the past and a fragile reality in her adopted homeland. In the tradition of the finest physician-novelists, Leah Kaminsky writes with precision, authenticity, and profound insight."--Amy Gottlieb, author of The Beautiful Possible

"Leah Kaminsky is a writer on whom nothing is lost. There are many lives, many worlds, and many days in the single day she depicts in The Waiting Room. The novel is a masterful debut."--Joseph Skibell, author of A Curable Romantic

"She's an evocative storyteller, and she's sensitive to the intersections between physical and emotional pain and the way that memory intrudes upon daily reality."--Kirkus

"[A] spectacular fiction debut.... A moving psychodrama."--Jewish Telegraphic Agency

"The personal, the political and the medical wrestle with history in this page-turning novel. An engrossing tale that is both acutely worldly and fiercely introspective."--Danielle Ofri, MD, author of What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine

Book Description

Weaving a vivid day-in-the-life narrative through a tapestry of memory, love and loss, The Waiting Room captures the sights, sounds, accents and animosities, of a country overflowing with stories.
