Award-winning author Emma Donoghue was shortlisted for both the Man Booker and Orange Prizes for her novel Room, also a much-lauded feature film. Based on the actual case notes of a 19th-century physician, "Cured" is a surgeon's blade revealing the rot at the heart of patriarchal arrogance. After young, unmarried Miss F. injures herself lifting a heavy kettle for the family to whom she's employed, the resulting back pain forces her to abandon her livelihood. But hope lies in the benevolence of her policeman brother, who sends Miss F. to a doctor reputed to be the "wisest man in all of Christendom" and a self-proclaimed "protector of womankind."
