Hard sought by collectors, this copy of Intern by Dr X. (Alan Nourse) is in good vintage condition. At the time, this was published by an anonymous Doctor as his tell-all about his first year in a medical hospital as an intern. This book blew the lid off certain issues the interns were dealing with, such as: long stretches of consecutive shifts, long shifts without breaks for sleep, and a multitude of other disclosures, never before so vividly exposed.

Although initially published anonymously, the author was later identified as Alan E. Nourse, who went on to have a prolific writing career, penning more than 30 books about medicine, astronomy, science fiction, and health science.

This book is in good vintage condition, with a few wear related issues. The jacket has a two tears at the top of the bind, one runs down about four inches, and the other about two inches. There is an X on the back written with permanent marker. It is about 2" x 2" in diameter. There is surface wear and creasing. The actual book pages are in great shape. The bind is holding all of the pages in place as if it was brand new. Corners of pages are sharp, no bending or creasing.

Publisher: Harpercollins.

404 pages.
