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 seems apparent.

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.
