Description: Like Lewis Thomas's classic essays, Spencer Nadler's The Language of Cells offers intimate, lyrical glimpses into an aspect of medicine that is too often treated impersonally.

As a surgical pathologist for over twenty-five years, Nadler was not content with the distance between his lab and the patient. Meeting with those whose diseased cells he diagnoses, he offers them a rare understanding. Hanna Baylan is a woman as determined as he to confront the cancer cells biopsied from her breast. Comille, a young boy with Sickle Cell anemia, has frequent wracking pain, but doesn't let it interfere with his gusto for life. And conducter Zehli Mehta invites comparison between the cellular rhythms that threaten his heart and those that govern his work. In these uncommon portraits, Nadler brings a unique clarity and compassion to medicine.
