Publisher's Summary

Spanning 10 decades, A Surgeon's Tale is a historical biography that reaches beyond the mere personal to convey something of the cultures, people, politics, and places that touch the inscrutable heart of human nature. This multifaceted immigrant's story percolates with tales of childhood neglect, intrigue, medical training, medical discoveries, scientific dishonesty, illicit romance, unspeakable scoundrels and murder, all the while disclosing the rites, rituals, rules, and language of surgery. It is a story of life with all its warts, love and affection - or lack of it, but ultimately, it is a story of determination, persistence, triumph and passion.

"Though third in a historic biographic quartet, Surgeon & Lover: Fulfillment & Folly is a stand-alone memoir. It is the riveting story of a young man trying to find a rightful, deserving place for himself as he struggles with nearly incapacitating demons-scars left by damage inflicted in a rootless childhood. Meguid compensates with a ravenous ambition and the want for love to give him the equilibrium and self-justification he needs. Told with honesty, self-deprecation, humor and artistry, it is a portrait of a lonely, emotionally impoverished man in pain who works tirelessly to fight off his insecurities. We can't help but admire how he faces life head on and root for him all the way." (Jan Tramontano, The Me I Was with You)
