Philip Roth's Patrimony: Narrative and Ethics in a Case Study
Erde, Edmund L.
Theoretical Medicine. 1995 Sep; 16(3): 239-252.
I assess the ethical content of Philip Roth's account of his father's final years with, and death from, a tumor. I apply this to criticisms of the nature and content of case reports in medicine. I also draw some implications about modernism, postmodernism and narrative understandings.
