Dr Anthony Fauci- Romance Novel Hero

Most people would likely describe Dr Anthony Fauci of NIAID as a hero. But romantic leading man? Well, at least one person would.

Meet Sally Quinn. On top of being a journalist, columnist and Washington DC insider, she’s also a novelist. In 1991, Quinn published Happy Endings a romance novel featuring Dr.Michael Lanzer, who romances the recently widowed First Lady and discovers a cure for AIDS.

Having been paired as a partner with Fauci at a dinner party, Quin was impressed by the good doctor. “I though, ‘Wow, this guy is amazing,’” Quinn told the Washington Post. Working on her manuscript Quinn asked, “What kind of person would she be in love with? It would not be somebody from a great family or with a lot of money. But it would be somebody who was really brilliant, and compassionate, and kind, and decent, and honest. All of those things—and sexy.””

And so say all of us. (Unfortunately, this news has helped the used book market- you can get a paperback copy of Happy Endings for only $989.90.
