Dr. Michael Lieberman is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Pathology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He is also a poet obsessed by the Holocaust. He cannot help but look at anything in the world, it seems, except with Holocaust tinted glasses. One would expect such a view to be a bore, but Lieberman is a poet of extraordinary gifts and we go along with him as we would with a lover obsessed with his love. This is not a depressing book; rather it is heroic, angry, humorous, witty, full of a scientist’s precise intelligence, and a poet’s madness.
