About this product
- DescriptionDoctor Placebo finds himself at the end of the western intellectual tradition, and on certain mornings feels almost as old. He broods about his patients; he broods about his poems. Sometimes the two intermingle and he can't remember whether he is a doctor moonlighting as a poet, or a poet moonlighting as a doctor.
