The writing is graceful and artistic.  It’s fluid and organized in through and action.  When I first started reading it I thought of my love for John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath.  You get that feel of what the Great Depression was like and how families responded to it, and to each…

Thomas Jay Berger, MD – Dueling in Death’s Backyard – True Grit

Exposing a scandal at the VA hospital was Dr. Cooper Logan’s responsibility, and his first mistake.  The world was background noise as Cooper worked to save lives.  He’d won his scholarship wrestling and keeping Death off-balance was his new passion.  But, politics wasn’t what Cooper was interested in and learning them the hard way cost him his residency.  But when the nurse who had betrayed him turns up dead Cooper’s life begins to unravel.  And the danger he faced now had Death staring him in the face.
With a realistic, heart-pounding medical thriller you can expect some intense scenes, but award winning author Dr. Thomas Jay Berger ups the stakes with behind-the-scenes hospital politics, questionable ethics, racism in hospitals and other issues that only someone who has really experienced this kind of life could give.  We caught up with Dr. Berger to talk to him about some of the hard stuff found in his novel Dueling in Death’s Backyard.


Without giving too much away, we find that an ICU nurse has become quite powerful because of who her protector is.  How realistic is this?  Do nurses have that much power?

Dr. Berger:      The Birmingham VA ICU in Dueling was a real problem.  Just as in my novel, patients were occasionally found dead, with normal vital signs recorded on their charts for many hours after their hearts had to have stopped beating.  To my knowledge, no nurse was ever disciplined for this.  VA positions are civil service protected and it is virtually impossible to fire anyone.  I should add that there are also excellent VA hospitals, like the one in Asheville, North Carolina, which is associated with Duke.  I served there as Chief of Surgery and an Associate Consulting Professor of Surgery on the Duke faculty.
            Even in non-VA hospitals, in these days of political correctness, a nurse can kill a patient and if the doctor involves uses intemperate language towards the nurse, he will be in trouble and the death will very likely be whitewashed.  If the nurse is protected by a powerful staff doctor, for whatever reason, this becomes even more likely.
            Don’t get me wrong.  I have tremendous respect for the vast majority of nurses.  They do an extremely difficult job very well for way too little pay.  Dueling describes several superb nurses, some of them based on actual people with whom I have worked, and only one really bad nurse.  From my work as a medical expert, I can tell you that bad doctors are a lot bigger problem today than bad nurses.

           

Your characters are set in the deep South and there are some uncomfortable moments of prejudice depicted in some scenes.  Why include that? Why is that important to the story?

Dr. Berger:      There was really no choice about including that.  That’s the way Birmingham, Alabama, was in the 1970s.  That’s how people talked and how many of them thought.  Cooper and I both experienced culture shock in Birmingham and that increased the stress of our residencies.   Cooper reflects my feelings about the deep south when I, like Cooper, had only been there for two years.  By the time I completed my seventh year of surgical training, I had come to love the South.  In fact, I now consider myself a Yankee by birth but a rebel by choice.
            There is no more prejudice in the South today than there is in the North, and even back in the seventies everyone who used racist language was not necessarily a racist.  That may seem hard to understand but, if you read the book, you will get it.  In Dueling, I tried to present Southerners accurately as including the best and worst of humanity – just like Northerners or any other group of folks.

Have you had any backlash from the medical community about how you portray the hospital and people who work there?

Dr. Berger:      Dr. Kirklin’s son is also a cardiac surgeon and the current chief of the Birmingham program.  He loved my novel and especially the way in which I so accurately described his father and what it was like to work under him.  I have also had rave reviews from many other physicians and nurses.
            My problems with the medical community relate to my activities as an expert witness not as a writer.  I have told the truth in court and depositions about many patients injured by the negligence or incompetence of their doctors.  The so-called malpractice crisis is not a crisis of frivolous litigation, as it is often portrayed.  It is a crisis of bad medicine.  Rather than working to punish or re-educate the few bad doctors, some powerful medical organizations have circled the wagons around them and attacked those who, like myself, stand up for the patients they have harmed.  This is the old conspiracy of silence back again, stronger and more organized than ever.
            The Society of Thoracic Surgeons, for example, has set up kangaroo courts which attack experts who have told the truth about patients harmed by its members.  This is not unlike the Mafia which also goes after those who testify against its members.  At least the Mafia is honest about what it is doing and why.
           
           
Why a medical thriller as opposed to literary fiction or a medical book?

Dr. Berger:      Actually I have written a number of scientific articles as well as a chapter in a book about medical malpractice litigation.  Since retiring from active practice in 1998, due to problems with my vision, I have served as an expert in hundreds of medical cases.  This work often involves writing detailed reports, which must be written in layman’s language.  These reports helped prepare me to describe complex surgical procedures dramatically in a way that any reader can understand and enjoy.  The way historical fiction can make a battle come alive as if you were there, my OR scenes make surgery come alive as if you were the surgeon.
 Writing fiction is the easiest kind of writing because you are all-powerful.  You can make anything happen in the world you create - anything.  Of course, that also means that you must choose what you want to happen out of a literally infinite number of options.  That’s why fiction is also the hardest kind of writing.
            When writing fiction, I can sit down and work for an hour, and, when I’m done, I’ll look at the clock and find that six hours have passed.  It’s the ultimate high.
            Why medical thrillers?  I guess it’s just because one must write about what one knows. 

What made you want to be an author?

Dr. Berger:      When I was about 8 years old, my father gave me a Tarzan book.  I have been reading ever since and the relationship between reader and author has always seemed magical to me.  If I write something that makes a reader laugh or cry, or love a character I created, that is just about the coolest thing I can imagine.  That is why I love answering questions about or discussing my novel.  I answer every email or Face Book query personally and, when I have a twitter account, I will gladly tweet back to any reader who tweets me.
