Abstract (Document Summary)

[William Nolen] had practiced in Litchfield, a town of about 5,500 people, since 1960. Until a few years ago he was the only general surgeon in Meeker County.

"The Making of a Surgeon," Nolen's 1970 book about his medical school experiences and subsequent residency at Bellevue Hospital, made the New York Times best-seller list.

He also wrote "Spare Parts for the Human Body," "A Surgeon's World," "Healing: A Doctor in Search of a Miracle," "Surgeon Under the Knife," "Baby in the Bottle," "Surgeon's Book of Hope," and, his last, published in 1984, "Crisis Time! Love, Marriage and the Male at Mid-Life," an accounting of his own mid-life anguish, during which he turned briefly to pills and alcohol in an effort to sleep.
