A Thousand Naked Strangers

A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back


In Jojo Moyes’s After You, Louisa Clark is still grieving the death of Will Traynor, the quadriplegic man she cared for and came to love in Me Before You. But grief isn’t the reason for her horrible fall, despite what her family thinks. Out of the tragedy comes new hope for living and a relationship with Patrick, the paramedic who treated her at the scene. The book provides glimpses of the harrowing, sometimes dangerous, and frequently rewarding life of paramedics.

For the nitty-gritty on the life of a paramedic read A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic’s Wild Ride to the Edge and Back by Kevin Hazzard. Interestingly, what Patrick experiences in London jibes with what Hazzard experienced as an emergency medical responder in Atlanta. Hazzard writes about what motivated him to become an EMT and then to train to become a paramedic. The stories he tells are straight out of the imagination of a screenwriter--only true! Every call is harrowing because of the unknown. Every call may turn out to be dangerous. And every call has the possibility of making the risks and challenges of the job worthwhile. These folks deserve the title hero.
