The great tonsil massacre
"The Great Tonsil Massacre uses creative non fiction to recount a public-health initiative that took place in Rochester, New York in 1920 and 1921. The narrative explores the motives of the industrialists and professionals who established two tonsil/adenoid clinics designed to benefit children whose families were subsisting on very limited incomes. At a second level, it examines some of the reasons that may have discouraged other citizens from publicly questioning the project, even though serious risks and inflated claims were involved. Finally, it follows the tensions that arise in the O'Connell family, whose members are directly affected by proponents' claims." -- from the publisher's description.
