For those readers who need a language warning, you may choose not to read this book to protect your own sensibilities. But guess what? Nurses swear. A lot. It's the only pop-off valve they have at times. So if you're offended by F-bombs and are likely to criticize someone whose shoes you've never worn because of them, move along. You're not going to understand the story anyway.
This book weaves seamlessly between Twitter and blog excerpts to establish slice of life veritas and the present day to provide the benefit of hindsight. While I follow Alexander's blog, and thus had read many of the excerpts in real time, the interweaving is masterful, and provides a fuller picture of the times.
This book is a year, and then some in the life of one ICU nurse as she cared for COVID-19 patients, but that year, in some form is typical of 4 million or so nurses in this country alone. Read the book and learn why cheering, banging pots and pizza parties just were not a sufficient way to support nurses.
A portion of this book is taken directly from the author's twitter feed, personal diaries, and email lists. The rest of the book is expands on that material to present a raw, unfiltered, uncensored, entirely honest look at a year of the life of a ICU nurse.
It isn't a happy book, and while reading it, you may find yourself depressed and/or angry. That is ok. You still need to read this book and understand what nurses went through, and sadly are still going through, in their effort to save people from COVID. If you are depressed and/or angry while reading this, you will be in very good company.
I have followed the author on Twitter since March 2020 and I have subscribed to her mailing lists. That means I've already read a fair bit of this book. I was not expecting much impact as I was already shocked by what was happening when I first read the material. Surprise! It still had the impact of a shovel to the face! It is that good.
Note: Full disclosure, I read an ARC version of this book, but I am told the difference between the ARC and the final book is literally one very short word. Even though I read the ARC, I still bought the book and so should you.
