This complete set of "The Gin Closet," "The Empathy Exams," and "The Recovering" have all been SIGNED by Leslie Jamison on their respective title pages! Sold as a set only. 1) "The Gin Closet" (2014) - Free Press. The author's debut novel. With an uncanny ear for dialogue and a witty, unflinching candor about sex, love, and power, Leslie Jamison reminds us that no matter how unexpected its turns are, this life we're given is all we have: the cruelties that unhinge us, the beauties that clarify us, the addictions that deform us, those fleeting possibilities of grace that fade as quickly as they come. 2) "The Empathy Exams" (2014) - a Graywolf Press Trade Paperback Original. A small first printing of this Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize Winner. Beginning with her experience as a medical actor, paid to act out symtoms for medical students to diagnose, Leslie Jamison's "The Empathy Exams" asks essential questions about our basic understanding of others: How should we care about one another? How can we feel another person's pain? Jamison draws from her own experiences to engage in an exploration of empathy that extends far beyond her life. This title has now been long-listed for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay. 3) "The Recovering" (2018) - Little Brown and Company. With its deeply personal and seamless blend of memoir, cultural history, literary criticism, and reportage, "The Recovering" turns our understanding of the traditional addiction narrativeon its head, demonstrating that the story of recovery can be every bit as electrifying as the train wreck itself.
