Heartsounds by Martha Lear (1980)

A moving account of a medical drama and a medical failure records the observations of surgeon Harold Lear, who, stricken by a series of coronaries, endured open-heart surgery and mysterious postsurgical complications before dying. Poignant and moving. A heard book to read, but an important one.
