About the Author

Perri Klass is professor of journalism and pediatrics at New York University, codirector of NYU Florence, and national medical director of Reach Out and Read. She writes the weekly column The Checkup for the New York Times.


"A Good Time to be Born is an ambitious, elegant meditation on what the doctor-writer Perri Klass describes as one of our greatest human achievements: a reduction in child mortality... [Klass] takes the most complex human patterns of all—history, medicine, politics, art—and knits them into something unique and beautiful... This is an important book for many reasons, but that Klass has given voice to the voiceless is perhaps the most significant."
*The New York Times Book Review*
