"When Frank Huyler was just starting out in the medical profession in the late 1990s, he published a collection of medical vignettes detailing his encounters in the highly charged world of an emergency room. The Blood of Strangers became an instant classic, praised for Huyler's poetic prose and his ability to probe beneath the surface of his patient encounters-revealing the hard truths of life in the medical field. Now, over twenty years later, Huyler delivers another dispatch from the emergency room trenches, this time from the perspective of the middle of his medical career. With years passed and experience gained, Huyler is able to offer a fuller and more nuanced portrait of what remains an astonishing, affirming, yet increasingly difficult and rapidly changing profession. White Hot Light offers-with narrative power and haunting prose-and unforgettable portrait of a field that illuminates society and its values at its most vulnerable"-- Provided by publisher.
