Five Days at Memorial
NY, Crown, (2013). The advance reading copy of Fink's National Book Critics Circle Award-winning book about the decision to hasten the deaths of some of the weaker patients while awaiting (and losing hope for) evacuation of Memorial Medical Center in the midst of Hurricane Katrina. Expanded from Fink's Pulitzer Prize-winning essay for the New York Times Magazine, and with textual changes between this version and the final, published book. "July 13" written in marker on the lower edge of the text block (the book was published in September). Fine in self-wrappers. A landmark of investigative reporting. Scarce in the advance issue.
