Jerome Groopman's list

Last week at The Week, Jerome Groopman named "The List."

One title from Groopman's list:
He, She, and It by Marge Piercy

Written as science fiction, this narrative is prescient, portraying a time when the Earth has become toxic and life itself may be extinguished. Under such conditions, human beings are forced to make difficult ethical choices, many of which could eventually be at hand, given the pace of scientific technology.
Read about all six titles on Groopman's list.

Jerome Groopman is a cancer and AIDS researcher, a professor at Harvard Medical School, and a writer for The New Yorker. His latest book is How Doctors Think.
