"I read Luis Jaramillo's beautiful collection in one sitting. This is a ravishing book. I loved every word. It should be required reading for everyone." --Abigail Thomas

"The Doctor's Wife is like the runaway child of Evelyn Waugh's A Handful of Dust--Luis Jaramillo's acerbic wit and satire are rare finds in America. Pick this up at once." --Alexander Chee

Winner of the Dzanc Short Story Contest, Luis Jaramillo's The Doctor's Wife pushes the limits of what a short story collection can be. In stylish, intimate, and devastating short flashes, Jaramillo chronicles the small domestic moments, tragic losses, and cultural upheavals faced by three generations of a family in the Pacific Northwest, creating a moving portrait of an American family and the remarkable woman at its center.
