Hailed by The Boston Globe as "a compact, faceted gem that shines with intelligence," this remarkable and fascinating book offers an honest, startling, deeply moving depiction of the modern emergency room. The twenty-eight vignettes in The Blood of Strangers, all written by a young E.R. physician and writer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, seamlessly juxtapose visceral portrayals of real and unedited hospital situations with perceptive and lyrical meditations on the world of medicine--and the world at large. All students, scholars, and practitioners of emergency medicine will find this stunning account of life, death, work, and reality in the E.R. both haunting and instructive.

Frank Huyler is an emergency physician living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His poetry has appeared in "The Atlantic Monthly," "The Georgia Review," "Poetry," & other publications.
