Review: Phoning Home: Essays by Jacob M. Appel

Phoning Home: Essays - Jacob M Appel

The book is compilation of essays based on various incidents in author life. It starts with an episode during his childhood which he kept a secret from his parents all his life to his encounters with patients as a medical student.
I encountered various emotions while reading and thoroughly enjoyed the process.I could totally relate to the event when the author went to search for his prized possession which he believes was stolen from him as a child, though it was only two rubber cats.In latter essays he mentioned about elderly patients with dementia and their difficulties;which were things I never gave a thought.
It was a fun and informative read.
