Intelligent, imaginative, and consummately researched, Kirsten Menger-Anderson's novel Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain treats a family of physicians from the progenitor's arrival in New Amsterdam through his seventh great-grandson's death. The 13 chapters comprise interlocking short stories related by place (New York City), theme (intention vs outcome in medical practice), and character (the van Schulers and their descendants, the Steenwycks). A genealogical chart in the frontispiece helps readers navigate the complex labyrinth of relationships.
