Livros que deram filme: The Physician, de Noah Gordon

The Physician é uma edição esgotada em Portugal - erradamente traduzida por «O físico». Um romance de Noah Gordon e que dá origem ao filme que estreou recentemente em Portugal. O livro faz parte de uma trilogia (The Cole Trilogy). Será que vamos ter mais do que um filme?
Dirigido por Philipp Stölzl, o filme conta com Tom Payne (II), Ben Kingsley e Stellan Skarsgård nos principais papéis.

Read by millions in thirty-two countries, soon to be a major motion picture, and voted “one of the ten most-beloved books of all time,” here is the English-language edition of Noah Gordon’s masterwork

In eleventh-century London, a child holds the hand of his dying mother and is terrified, aware something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole becomes a fast-talking swindler, peddling a worthless medicine. But as he matures, his strange gift—an acute sensitivity to impending death—never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer.
Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world’s most renowned physician, Avicenna. How the woman who is his great love struggles against her only rival—medicine—makes a riveting modern classic.
The Physician is the first book in Noah Gordon’s Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which continues with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.
