He is also a widely published poet with two collections and work in The Times Literary Supplement, London Review of Books, and Manhattan Review, among many journals, and is widely anthologized. He has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles, many book chapters and eight books - most recently Medical Education for the Future: Identity, Power and Location (Springer 2011) and The Heart of the Matter: Patient-Centered Medicine in Transition (Springer 2013), and an edited collection Medicine, Health and the Arts: Approaches to the Medical Humanities (eds.

Curiously, the book came out on the same day as Alan Bleakley's new collection of poetry, Striking Blows for Drummers. This made for a nice toast at the Lamorna Cove restaurant on Friday night last.

Fuz (as he is known) is an excellent poet and it's great to see his first new work for quite a while.
