Spirit Catches You And You Fall Down

Product Description

ISBN-13: 978-0-374-53340-3 • The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down explores the clash between a small county hospital in California and a refugee family from Laos over the care of Lia Lee, a Hmong child diagnosed with severe epilepsy. Lia's parents and her doctors both wanted what was best for Lia, but the lack of understanding between them led to tragedy. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Current Interest, and the Salon Book Award, Anne Fadiman's compassionate account of this cultural impasse is literary journalism at its finest. The current edition, published on the book's fifteenth anniversary, includes a new afterword by the author that provides updates on the major characters and reflections on the effect they have had on Fadiman over the years.
