'Empathy Exams' is a virtuosic manifesto of human pain
from National Public Radio
A boyfriend once called standardized patient Leslie Jamison "a wound dweller." This is one of many personal morsels she shares in her virtuosic book of essays, "The Empathy Exams," in which she intrepidly probes sore spots to explore how our reactions to both our own pain and that of others define us as human beings. Jamison notes with concern that ironic detachment has become the fallback in this "post-wounded" age that fears "anything too tender, too touchy-feely."
