The White Coat Diaries
Norah Kapadia’s first day of medical residency isn’t all starlight and songbird-filled euphoria; in fact, it’s the exact opposite. All of her studies and social isolation and sleepless nights have led her to what she thought was the job of her dreams, but this one may be more like a nightmare.
Madi Sinha’s book White Coat Diaries is a funny, smart, and personal look at the life of one woman trying to make her mark in an industry dominated by men while trying to live up to the legacy of her late father. Add the first blushes of intimacy and dating to the mix and a mother whose health issues are only slightly less concerning than her laser focus on Norah getting married and you have a novel that is both familiar and sad and joyful. Like many twenty-somethings, Norah is determined to make her life useful, but along the way she learns that there are lines in the professional world she is expected to cross, lines that make her uncomfortable, and there are people who expect her to bend to their will.
Norah’s growth into her own person, her discovery of what she truly wants and what most matters to her, and her involvement in a mistake that costs someone’s life all converge in the highly readable White Coat Diaries.
