Reviews

"An unstoppable adrenaline rush with lyrical moments of truth and beauty." --Theresa Brown, author of Critical Care "Take a terrific writer and put him in tragic, frantic, emotional, heartbreaking and freaking situations for years--you get A Thousand Naked Strangers...This book is one long rush." --Phillip Jennings, author of Nam-a-Rama and Goodbye Mexico "Get ready to feel the gun-slinging, God-like power of running calls in the back of an ambulance." --Julie Holland, M.D., author of Weekends at Bellevue "Buckle up and prepare for an eye-opening plunge into barely controlled chaos." --Judy Melinek, M.D., coauthor of Working Stiff "As absorbing as it is revealing." --Bob Drury, coauthor of The Heart of Everything There Is "More tragic andhorrifying, but also more comical, than can be imagined." --Katrina Firlik, author of Another Day in the Frontal Lobe "Hazzard observes keenly, remembers faithfully, but also struggles to analyze his motives for loving those crazy nights on the bad side of town when the universe slips a gear and all hell breaks loose." --J.Michael Lennon, author of the authorized biography Norman Mailer "No one has a closer view into our fearful hearts than the paramedic, and no one writes it like Kevin Hazzard. He's given us a deep intimate portrait of the toll it takes to every day witness our most vulnerable moments." --Joe Connelly, author of Bringing Out the Dead "A shocking, utterly compelling tour de force that shows the dark heart of an Atlanta that I never knew existed...I couldn't let the book go--it's powerful enough to have turned me into an ambulance chaser in my own small South Carolina town, but it's also very, very funny." --Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini "A thrilling, captivating, and sometimes grisly glimpse into what it takes to be a first responder in the city of Atlanta. Hazzard's prose is quick, witty, and fresh...This frank and morbidly funny memoir...takes readers on a wild and unforgettable ride." --Booklist "Hazzard's unblinking view of chaos is not for weak stomachs, but it's variously raw, poetic, and profoundly hopeful." --Publishers Weekly "Action-packed...With blunt language and a raw narrative tone rich with gruesome detail, Hazzard immerses readers in the bloody, hardened reality of an emergency response team racing to accident scenes....[Features] anecdotes both thrilling and startlingly gory...A vivid, pummeling ride-along." --Kirkus Reviews
