Author Talks: Michelle Johnston


Join local author and emergency physician, Michelle Johnston at the Cambridge Library to hear about this wonderful debut novel.

She studied medicine at UWA, and gained her Fellowship with the Australian College for Emergency Medicine in 1998.

She loves caring for patients and teaching, but is terminally confused by health bureaucracy and is an expert in meeting avoidance.

She believes there is a beating heart of humanity, art, and beauty within the sometimes brutal reality of the Emergency Department, and she has dedicated her career to finding that sweet spot between creativity and critical care medicine.

Books are her other oxygen, and writing her sustenance.


The tale of the crashing consequences of medical error, the suffering caused by asbestos mining and the power of storytelling.
