Product Description

Beginning with her experience as a medical actor, paid to act out symptoms for medical students to diagnose, Leslie Jamison's The Empathy Exams asks essential questions about our basic understanding of others: How should we care about one another? How can we feel another person's pain? Jamison draws far beyond her life. These essays range widely-from street violence to reality television, poverty tourism to literary sentimentality, illness to incarceration-in their search for a kind of sight shaped by humility and grace.
