A Tortuous Path: Atonement and Reinvention in a Broken System

In this thought-provoking sequel to his first award-winning memoir, “Trauma, Shame, and the Power of Love: The Fall and Rise of a Physician who Heals Himself,” former elite cancer doctor and researcher, Christopher Pelloski, chronicles his compelling journey from federal incarceration to halfway house detention to the first few years of building a new “after” life. Alternating between humor, pathos, and measured outrage, Pelloski takes us with him as he weathers imprisonment, divorce, and medical board hearings, undergoes polygraph interrogations and court-mandated therapy, finds a new home, starts a new profession, reconnects with family and old friends, and forges new relationships in “A Tortuous Path: Atonement and Redemption in a Broken System.” Diverse stories of those encountered along the way show the faces of those most affected by the failures and capriciousness of the American justice system-and demonstrate the essential value of kindness and second chances.
