A Mistake


By Carl Shuker | Price: $30

Elizabeth Taylor is a surgeon at a city hospital, a gifted, driven and rare woman excelling in a male-dominated culture. One day, while operating on a young woman in a critical condition, something goes gravely wrong. A Mistake is a compelling story of human fallibility, and the dangerous hunger for black and white answers in a world of exponential complication and nuance.

Carl Shuker is a former editor at the British Medical Journal and the author of four novels – The Method Actors, winner of the Prize in Modern Letters in 2006; The Lazy Boys; Three Novellas for a Novel; and Anti Lebanon (Counterpoint, 2013). He lives in Wellington with his wife and two children.
