"Appropriately colloquial, idiomatic translation of prolific Argentine writer's novel Soy paciente. A humerous satire on the state's health care system, novel may remind readers of Ken Kesey's One flew over the cuckoo's nest. No accompanying materials, which is unfortunate since Shua's work is not yet well known in English"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
