Reviews

"If Raymond Carver had been a doctor, these are the stories he would have written. There are no untarnished heroes here. This is the world as it is: lovely and disturbing all at once."--Atul Gawande, author of "Complications"
"Dr. Huyler' s short, intense book treats of only the most important matters: life and death. His prose is nearly invisible, and therefore it allows us to see what he is talking about. And once we see it, we are not likely to forget it. This is a young writer with a big mind--and an even bigger heart."--Paul Auster, author of "Oracle Night"
"Moving. What characterizes each of these miniatures is the candor in which they are offered, and their authenticity."--Richard Selzer, "San Francisco Chronicle"
"The author of these doctor stories is an E.R. physician as well as a poet, and his work shows the economy and sharp attention that both jobs demand."--"The New Yorker"
