Book Title: Dead Man Dreaming
Author Name: Uday Mukerji
Book Synopsis: Dead Man Dreaming is a literary fiction about one man's fight against hereditary genetic diseases – from losing his girlfriend to finding love again – and how he overcomes his fear and frustrations and comes to terms with his own Huntington's disease.
The confirmation of HD brings the senior resident physician, David’s life to a halt. His three-year-old relationship with his girlfriend, Chloe, also comes to an end. But instead of resigning to his sorry state, he dreams of finding a solution to prevent all hereditary genetic diseases. With his high school friend, Jessie, he starts an awareness campaign for Carrier Screening Tests for all before becoming a parent. The movement brings an overwhelming response, but not without condemnations. And through all that, David finds new love and new hope in life again.
It’s the journey of a desperate man with a death sentence hanging over his head that makes this book inspiring and riveting.
