The debut novel from physician Madi Sinha, The White Coat Diaries follows the brilliant medical resident Norah Kapadia as she strives to balance her dreams of being a doctor and her duty to be ‘the perfect Indian daughter’. Ethan Cantor is chief resident and embodies everything Norah longs to be professionally: respected by peers, well-loved by patients, and calm during the chaos of the medical profession. Witty, warm and endearing, Norah’s journey of self-discovery will have you absorbed from the outset.

Reading room discussion: Norah strives to reconcile her family’s expectations with her career aspirations; have you gone through a similar experience? How did you cope with it?
