More About the Book

the radical transformation was simple with acceptance
the darkness was a necessary phase in the cycle of change
it allowed her to embody strength
it set her free with truth
nothing was more powerful
than the moment she succumbed to authenticity
and she flew.

In Roses and Thorns: a memoir-esque compilation of a beautiful and messy life, author Michelle Goñi, MD presents a collection of raw, emotional, and empowering prose poetry. She shares honest, heartfelt, sometimes gut-wrenching stories of fear, failure, and pain as well as warm, inspiring, and relatable poems of love, evolution, and transformation. Her book gives the reader permission to embrace a perfectly imperfect life.

Dr Goñi’s personal journey invites the reader to share their own stories by deeply connecting with her written words, thoughts, and feelings. Michelle’s poems are humbling and they normalize vulnerability, a tool she uses to overcome shame and fear. Roses and Thorns will spark introspection, inspire empathetic relationships, and help the reader discover authentic self-acceptance.

Book: Man’s 4th Best Hospital

Man’s 4th Best Hospital is the fictional sequel to The House of God, and Basch and the gang are back together to fight against corporate medicine. This time the novel is set in a present-day academic medical center, and almost every doctor-patient interaction has been corrupted by greed and distracting technology.

Book: The House of God

By turns heartbreaking, hilarious, and utterly human, The House of God is a mesmerizing and provocative novel about what it really takes to become a doctor.
