    Arthur Hailey
    [​IMG]
    Arthur Hailey (5 April 1920 – 24 November 2004) was a British/Canadian novelist, whose works have sold more than 170 million copies in 40 languages. Most of the novels are set within one major industry, such as hotels, banks or airlines, and explore the particular human conflicts sparked-off by that environment. They are notable for their plain style, extreme realism, based on months of detailed research, and a sympathetic down-to-earth hero with whom the reader can easily identify.

    The Final Diagnosis

    [​IMG]
    A look at the workings of a modern day hospital through the lens of the pathologists department.
    “As is your pathology, so is your practice,” said Sir William Osler, the philosopher-physician over 100 years ago. While today some may not entirely agree with the sweeping generalisation of the statement, it remains a fact that pathology forms the bedrock of medicine. Arthur Hailey, too, recognised this fact when he wrote The Final Diagnosis in 1959. While most novels and movies dealing with medicine revolve around clinicians, particularly surgeons, Hailey decided to make the department of pathology and the pathologist the core of the action. Surgeons and other physicians in the hospital are, of course, important players; they have to be, because, after all, pathology makes its existence felt after the surgeon has made the first move.

    Airport

    [​IMG]
    Airport is a bestselling 1968 novel by Arthur Hailey about a large metropolitan airport and the personalities of the people who use, rely and suffer from its operation. This book was adapted into a major motion picture starring Burt Lancaster, George Kennedy, Dean Martin and Van Heflin, among others and inspired three sequels: Airport 1975, Airport '77 and The Concorde ... Airport '79.
    The story takes place at Lincoln International, a fictional Chicago airport based very loosely on O'Hare International Airport.

    The action mainly centers on Mel Bakersfeld, the Airport General Manager. His devotion to his job is tearing apart his family and his marriage to his wife Cindy, who resents his use of his job at the airport as a device to avoid going to various after-hours events she wants him to participate in, as she attempts to climb into the social circles of Chicago's elite. His problems in his marriage are further exacerbated by his romantically charged friendship with a lovely divorcee, Trans America Airlines passenger relations manager Tanya Livingston.
