Dr Pati, the psychiatrist who played "Dr Sonjee" in the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, presents us with an excellent
set of short stories. That these short stories are at least somewhat autobiographical
There are 20 short stories in all. One is to be made into a movie. All
are similar in that Dr Sonjee, a psychiatrist practicing in the United States,
originally from India, faces some adventure in a humble, thoughtful, but infinitely
curious way, leading to a satisfactory outcome.
