More Than It Hurts You
Author: Darin Strauss
Publisher: Plume
Price: $18.50 (Paperback)

Long Island, N.Y., salesman Josh Golden’s family and entire judgment system are shattered the day his eight-month-old son Zack is rushed to hospital. The infant had very recently suffered serious, unexplainable symptoms, but pediatric head Dr. Darlene Stokes places diagnosis instead on Josh’s wife Dori, suspecting she has Munchausen syndrome. The ailment pinpoints the parent as the cause of injury in order to gain attention, shocking Josh. Suddenly, he’s pitted against his wife, lawyers, media and the state, caught up in a battle for his son, coloured by his own racial and class-based biases.
