History of SARS

News of the death from cancer at age just 51 of Dr Sheela Basrur, Toronto's inspirational director of Public Health during the SARS crisis of 2003 makes me think: there has been no big book on Toronto/SARS/2003. Vincent Lam's novel Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures uses it as a backdrop, but what a story remains to be told -- medical, socio-cultural, political, psychological.

So much dreck on the shelves... and yet so many unwritten books.
