1929. Magnificent Obsession is Douglas's first book. The novel introduces themes that reappear in the author's later books-a medical setting, a wealthy background, the conversion of the atheist hero to a practicing Christian from feelings of guilt. In this case it's after causing the death of a brain surgeon, Wayne Hudson.
