Psychological novels (psychological fiction, psychological thrillers): a new and exciting release written by a brain surgeon
The Neurosurgeon by Travis Robertson is a must-read psychological thriller leading us down the dangerous path of addiction. The book is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Fascinating psychological novels are becoming more and more popular with the reading public. While the main purpose of a book of fiction, including psychological fiction, is to entertain and take the reader through foreign lands, such an activity can also be informative. In The Neurosurgeon not only do we experience the emotional and surgical drama but also we learn about the trials and tribulations of addiction, recovery, the road to rehabilitation, redemption and hope.
When Doctor Ira Stone meets his new scrub nurse, Stephanie DeLeon, for the first time, tiny bubbles fizz and billow up his spine–and ours also.
“…Startled, I glanced up, holding Nurse DeLeon’s rather compelling gaze longer than simple acknowledgement required. I couldn’t decide if her eyes were more brown or more yellow. Maybe a dark amber. Or a light cinnamon surrounding expanded, black pupils. The orbs, flanked by her long sable eyelashes, possessed a glowing quality. The scrub nurse seemed never to blink. I did not know why, but I felt as if my mind were being excavated…as if she could read my mutinous thoughts. Perhaps even those to which not even I had access…”

Psychological Novels: a book of psychological fiction
“A psychological novel, also called psychological realism, is a work of prose fiction which places more than the usual amount of emphasis on interior characterization, and on the motives, circumstances, and internal action which springs from, and develops, external action. The psychological novel is not content to state what happens but goes on to explain the motivation of this action. In this type of writing character and characterization are more important than usual , and they often delve deeper into the mind of a character than novels of other genres. The psychological novel can be called a novel of the “inner man,” so to say. In some cases, the stream of consciousness technique, as well as interior monologues, may be employed to better illustrate the inner workings of the human mind at work. Flashbacks may also be featured. While these three textual techniques are also prevalent in “modernism,” there is no deliberate effort to fragment the prose or compel the reader to interpret the text.”
Psychological novels: The Neurosurgeon is a book of psychological fiction. Not only the general reading public but also patients suffering from the disease of addiction and their therapists will find this psychological novel a worthwhile read. Also see Psychological Fiction and Psychological Thrillers.
The Neurosurgeon will appeal to nurses, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists, practitioners of addiction research and therapy, physicians in both medicine and surgery, alcoholics, addicts and their families. The Neurosurgeon is especially relevant for doctors and nurses having succumbed to the hidden tentacles of addiction, including alcohol, methamphetamine, Quaalude, and benzodiazepines.
Do Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Alanon, and similar programs really help the addict and his or her family? Is a good rehabilitation/recovery residential facility worth the cost? Perhaps the answers might be found in The Neurosurgeon, written by a physician and recovering addict. Warning: some of the scenes my be offensive to some readers, but they are a reality in many of our lives.
Psychological novels: “The Neurosurgeon:” A brief summary
The Neurosurgeon portrays the life of Ira Stone, a renowned physician whose very soul becomes entangled in the nightmare of alcohol and sex. He simply cannot take one without the other.
Ira is called on to treat an injured Peace Corps worker in Caracas, Venezuela. She dies under mysterious circumstances, and her sister, Stephanie, secretly blames Ira and is determined to exact her revenge. Years later Ira enters the Penn State operating room to remove a vascular malformation. He discovers a new scrub nurse humming “Sylvia’s Mother,” as she marshals her surgical instruments. Her name is Stephanie DeLeon.
The plague of addiction deep within the surgeon’s brain drives Ira from his family and into the arms of this beautiful nurse, a Nightingale with dark intentions. One evening, the powerful blackness of Steffi’s widely dilated pupils draws him inside and into a kiss that forever changes his life. Ira enters dangerous, foreign lands. The doctor must conquer his demons or perish.
“…At times, reading The Neurosurgeon is like watching a car wreck—sometimes grotesque, yet always compelling. Relationships are fractured and dissolved. People are hurt, even die. But once begun, there is no turning back from this riveting story…”
“Robertson writes well, especially for a first-time novelist. His characters appear on the pages as people the reader may know, and their experiences feel real. At a group session in residential treatment, a man describes taking his two young children to the park, where he drinks a bottle of whiskey and passes out: ‘Some woman found little Junie standing on the main street and bawling her eyes out. It was raining. And cold.’… James fidgeted with a pencil, silent, working his mouth. ‘Are you finished?’ inquired Fletcher. ‘What about the infant?’ ‘They never found Leslie.’ The pencil snapped in two, pieces dropping into his lap, the patient reduced to a despairing, breathless whimper…”
“…The story’s narrator and eponymous superstar doctor, Ira Stone, is believable but not likable at the story’s start. He’s nasty in his swagger, sexism, and selfish embrace of sex and booze. The book follows Stone from childhood through college, his career, several wives – and his torrid affair with the mysterious, damaged nurse, Stephanie DeLeon, whose life intersects with Stone’s in more ways than he knows. The plot is framed at an addiction center, where Stone’s life story unfolds as part of Alcoholics Anonymous’ group therapy…”
