More Than it Hurts You by Darin StraussThe acclaimed author of Chang and Eng returns with a literary showstopper— a beautifully realized novel that at its heart is the story of a woman who will risk everything to feel something; a doctor whose diagnosis brings her entire life into question; and a man who suddenly realizes that being a good husband and a good father can no longer comfortably coexist.
Josh Goldin was savoring a Friday afternoon break in the coffee room, harmlessly flirting with coworkers while anticipating the weekend at home where his wife, Dori, waited with their eight-month-old son, Zack. And then Josh’s secretary rushed in, using words like intensive care, lost consciousness, blood. . . .
That morning, Dori had walked into the emergency room with her son in severe distress. Enter Dr. Darlene Stokes: an African-American physician and single mother whose life is dedicated both to her own son and navigating the tricky maze of modern-day medicine. But something about Dori stirred the doctor’s suspicions. Darlene had heard of the sensational diagnosis of Munchausen by Proxy, where a mother intentionally harms her baby, but had never come upon a case of it before. It was rarely diagnosed and extraordinarily controversial. Could it possibly have happened here?
As their four lives intersect with dramatic consequences, Darlene, Dori, and Josh are pushed to their breaking points as they confront the nightmare that has become their new reality. Darin Strauss’s extraordinary novel is set in a world turned upside down—where doctors try to save babies from their parents, police use the law to tear families apart, and the people you know the best end up surprising you the most.

This Hurts Me More Than It Hurts You?
For the good of their children, parents must be able to properly—sometimes even excruciatingly—discipline them when necessary. This is one of those times. And it is because I love you that I sometimes have to punish you. And for as much discomfort as you will experience, the anguish a father feels when he disciplines his child is nearly unendurable, like a woodpecker hollowing out his heart and filling it with hot grease. Believe me when I say this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you. I will start by taking five bumblebees I captured earlier and releasing them in my mouth, pursing my lips until the bees sting themselves into permanent unconsciousness. Knowing I have a severe—though not fatal—allergy to bee stings, you can expect my facial features to swell beyond recognition.

This Is Going To Hurt Me More Than It Hurts You
Of our three children, our seven year-old boy, is the most caring, the most helpful, the most sensitive. He can also be the most exasperating. He can be the biggest pain in the backside since red-hot pokers were invented. And he has got down to a fine art the ability to completely ruin a day. That's what happened on Saturday. We all ventured out to the local park — me , my wife, my year-old stepdaughter, our four year-old. Scooters and a football, a backpack filled with farmers' market bread, cheese and russets.

We are certainly a kinder and gentler society than a couple of generations ago, but is that a good thing? Growing up I never feared for my safety a pain free behind to sit on- yes, safety-no , but I did have a certain amount of fear that my dad could take away my ability to sit pain free if I gave him a reason. In the last twenty-five years we have made real progress in how we treat others and how we discipline our kids.
