The Invisible Worm That Flies in the Night.
Sound Creepy? It’s supposed to. It’s from William Blake’s poem The Sick Rose and represents disease. It is also the apt name of Dr. Stuart Fischer’s upcoming fiction novel. For Fischer it also represents a very real fear. The fear of disease. The fear of disease may have been a part of his inspiration for his three books. The throughline of all three he says, “is health.”
The first, is The Little Book of Big Medical Emergencies. It’s a great handbook to have around to inform most every possible inury. The second is The Park Avenue Diet, all about becoming the person you want to be, not through diet alone (did I mention Fischer worked for years with Dr. Atkins, and appreciates but doesn’t quite agree with his dieting advice) but through a total renovation of self—through grooming, exercise, diet and fashion.
In the interview we talk extensively about health and wellness and also about the life of a physician—the everyday life as well as the tragic and horrifying incidents doctors have to deal with. These incidents make up the numerous short stories that constitute The Invisible Worm That Flies in the Night. And they are horrifying—as the eloquent Fisher tells us.
