The Emperor of All Maladies

The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer is a book written by Siddhartha Mukherjee, an Indian-born American physician and oncologist. Published on 16 November 2010 by Scribner, it won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction: the jury called it “an elegant inquiry, at once clinical and personal”. The Guardian wrote that “Mukherjee manages to convey not only a forensically precise picture of what he sees, but a shiver too, of what he feels.”
