If you need an emergency appendectomy on Nantucket, the man who will perform it knows how to do so with a scalpel he carved himself. Island life is like that: a little unusual, improvised, independent, and outside the mainstream. And Nantucket's only surgeon, Dr. Timothy Lepore, a libertarian gun collector and roadkill collector with unusual views about the practice of medicine, is as idiosyncratic a character as any of his patients. Still, he's the glue that holds healthcare together on this isolated, historically-celebrated island.
In Island Practice, award-winning New York Times reporter Pam Belluck takes readers deeply into Lepore's world, showing what it is like to practice medicine in a unique yet quintessentially American community, filled with independent-minded pioneers who could give a tinker's cuss or a whale's spit what the rest of the country thinks of them.
