About the Author

Tilda Shalof is an intensive care unit nurse with twenty years of experience in Israel, New York, and Canada. Her first book, A Nurse's Story: Life, Death, and In-Between in an Intensive Care Unit, was a bestseller that received rave reviews. She lives with her husband and two sons in Toronto.

Reviews

"Grey's Anatomy should be so compelling. . . . The book, a follow-up to her first effort, the bestselling A Nurse's Story: Life, Death, and In-Between in an Intensive Care Unit, seems intended to answer two questions that pester the career nurse: How did you choose that profession? And why have you stuck it out for so long? Marshalling her considerable charm, a knack for vivid images and a crash cart jammed with real-life stories, Shalof fashions answers that are nuanced and often heart-wrenching."
-- Globe and Mail

"The book is an enthralling marriage of drama and introspection, narrative and analysis that never flags and never loses the reader's attention. . . . Much of The Making of a Nurse reads with a crackling vitality, an as-it-happens energy that captures the intensity of the environment and her work, a world in which 'another day at the office' is an ongoing confrontation with illness and death."
-- The Gazette (Montreal) "The Making of a Nurse should find a variety of readers: readers of memoir, nurses, those seeking a good story all will find much to savour here. One hopes, though, it will find readers among people seeking a way to find meaning in their lives, a way to put their caring and patience to good use. It is comforting to know that there are nurses (and writers) like Tilda Shalof out there; would that there were more like her."
-- Ottawa Citizen Praise for A Nurse's Story "A cracking good read. . . ."
-- Quill & Quire "There are genuinely heart-rending, disturbing and thought-provoking stories to be found in the pages of A Nurse's Story. If this book doesn't give you pause, you're made of stone."
-- Edmonton Journal "[It is] difficult to put down, so compelling and beautifully written are these stories. . . . Shalof's stories are naked and vulnerable."
-- Winnipeg Free Press
