Catherine Kim


Catherine Kim is at work on a collection of short stories based on the history of treatment for diseases developed by physicians over two centuries, told from the perspective of the women, children, and families who, knowingly or not, served as experimental subjects for the cures. She is also writing a historical novel based on the 1865 trial of Mary Harris, the nineteen-year daughter of poor Irish immigrants, who shot her lover. In a trial that was a national sensation, her attorneys argued her innocence with a novel defense, Paroxysmal Moral Insanity: that is, she was menstruating.

Catherine is Associate Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, where she specializes in obstetrics and gynecoloy. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
