Find out what makes surgical residents tick… • Do surgeons talk about their sex lives while cutting a heart open? • How much time do surgical interns actually spend in the OR? • Do surgeons respond to death as objective doctors or as compassionate people? • How do they react when asked to save the life of an abuser or a criminal or an addict? Since its debut, the ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy has raised compelling questions like these. With an emphasis on the personal lives of the surgical interns, residents, and attending physicians, the show has generated a flurry of interest in how these medical professionals really make it through one of the most rigorous educational programs around. How much of the medical drama seen in Grey’s Anatomy is pure entertainment, and how much is an accurate reflection of life both in and out of the OR? Here, a well-known medical journalist provides some answers. He examines a group of new surgical residents at a major teaching hospital in the Pacific Northwest as they tackle the roller-coaster ride of long hours, fascinating procedures, mundane office tasks, and emotional ups and downs that comprise the life of a student of surgery.
ABOUT THE BOOK Borrowing the title from a famous medical text, Gray's Anatomy, ABC's Grey's Anatomy premiered mid-season in 2005 following Desperate Housewives on Sunday nights, as noted by "When the Scrubs Come Off" in New York Magazine. Tales of Sex and Surgery in New York Times calls it a mix of Sex and the City and ER, and praises main character Meredith Grey and her fellow surgical interns for having meaningful work, especially compared to the characters of Desperate Housewives or The O.C., two popular shows at the time of the Grey's premiere. As discussed in Tales of Sex and Surgery,Greys Anatomy taps into the hero-doctor figure, an image lost in an era of 15-minute appointments and medical treatments decided by insurance companies. Unlike Meredith Grey, your surgeon doesn't care that you both wore the same shoes that day. What is unrealistic about the show makes it successful. Meredith, Cristina, and Izzie are more focused on their career ambitions and less about how to balance their jobs, homes, and boyfriends with time left for themselves. These girls believe they can have it all and go for it. MEET THE AUTHOR EmmaLee has been writing since grade school, but professionally since 2009. She enjoys young adult novels, trampolines, and tea parties. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The past and present are irreparably connected in Grey's Anatomy. This is demonstrated from the beginning, as the opening lines discuss Meredith's mother, who had been a great surgeon. Throughout the season, Meredith, Izzie, and Alex all reveal bits of their past that have pushed them to become better surgeons: Meredith's mother told her she did not have what it takes. Izzie grew up in a trailer park and had to wait tables to pay for college. Alex's father was an addict. Meredith's mother represents a deep past. She was a great surgeon at Seattle Grace. The Chief knew her well. Great things are expected from Meredith because she is Ellis Grey's daughter. Everyday she walks down the hallways her mother once commanded and has to find a way to live up to that past. At the same time, her mother is losing her present to Alzheimers and becoming deeply entrenched in her past, which carries extreme pain for Meredith.

Can we deny being disciples of Grey’s Anatomy? No, in faith we can’t.

Grey’s Anatomy’s family—Meredith, Cristina, Owen, Derek and all the other doctors—has become our own family. We can forgive them anything—escapades, affairs, wacky diagnoses and outrageous mistakes in the or. Anything, except one thing: not being real.

But the reality was that Dornan's being thrust into “Instant” celebrity was more than a decade in the making chronicled in entertaining depth in the Inside Grey's Anatomy: The Unauthorized Biography of Jamie Dornan by New York Times best-selling author Marc Shapiro. Dornan' story is ripe with pathos, talent, determination and luck. After losing his mother at an early age, Dornan struggled with frustration and aimlessness as he attempted to find his way in the world.
