The Dynasty - A Medical Novel Author:Charles Knickerbocker This novel concerns the medical profession, and I am a practicing physician. However, this is not an autobiographical novel in any sense of the term. I can scarcely claim that the material of this book was invented without relationship to my experiences as a physician. Almost everything in this book has happened. There is truth in this book, and... more » there is fiction, but the two are blended in such a fashion that I can't tell them apart.
