Book Title: Arrowsmith

Author: Sinclair Lewis

Book Description:

Arrowsmith is one of the acclaimed books of Sinclair Lewis that earned him a Pulitzer Prize. For me, this book is significant at several levels. It was the first book in English that I read. It accurately portrays the struggle of physician scientists between the economic forces that drive one to clinical practice and the passion for science and experimentation. For me, in a way, it has turned out to be at many levels prophetic of my own life.
