FATHER MICHAEL'S LOTTERY

WINNER OF A 2009 NAUTILUS BOOK AWARD SILVER MEDAL FOR HUMANITARIAN FICTION Father Michael's Lottery is a portrayal of the fight against AIDS as seen through the eyes of Dr. John Morgan, the leading doctor of a motley crew of surgeons and nurses in a fictional rural community hospital in southern Africa. Yet, his opponent is not only the disease itself: Morgan must also contend with the apathetic administrators, and in particular the pompous director of the hospital, Holmes, against whom he wages a relentless vendetta.
