Born in a small town in Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Lake Linden, Margaret Mayotte-Hirn grew up experiencing her life to the fullest. Today, she can look back and remember and be glad she experienced all those things that made her who she is today. She worked full-time in hospitals for 48 years and began writing when she was in her 60s. She raised three children, got a divorce, remarried, and enjoyed three new children in her life. She also gardened, raised Arabian horses and showed them, played softball since she was 26, and volunteered in her spare time. It didnt leave much time for serious writing, but the desire was there. Leaving full-time hospital work did give her more time to do more. She volunteered and was selected Volunteer of the Year for 2 different organizations. She traveled states-wide to play softball in tournaments. She was an advocate for senior action and exercise. At age 70, she underwent bilateral knee replacements which slowed her down for a little while. Determined to return to former activity, she dove into therapy. Within 6 months, she regained all her mobility and resumed all her activities. During her sloweddown time, she thought about publishing the 2 books she had written in past years. With that taking place, who knows maybe her next passion will be writing. Inquisitive, daring thoughtful, caring and looks at life in a simple straight-forward way and addresses its challenges. These attributes are refl ected in her writing.

In The Night Shift, Dr. Brian Goldman shares his experiences in the witching hours at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto. We meet the kinds of patients who walk into an E.R. after midnight: late-night revellers injured on their way home after last call, teens assaulted in the streets by other teens and a woman who punches another woman out of jealousy over a man. But Goldman also reveals the emotional, heartbreaking side of everyday E.R. visits: adult children forced to make life and death decisions about critically ill parents, victims of sexual assault, and mentally ill and homeless patients looking for understanding and a quick fix in the twenty-four-hour waiting room. Written with Goldman’s trademark honesty and with surprising humour, The Night Shift is also a frank look at many issues facing the medical profession today, and it offers a highly compelling inside view into an often shrouded world.

New York is the city that never sleeps. This luminous book peels back the cover of darkness over the city as it hums along in the night, revealing a hidden world populated by the thousands of women and men who work and live the nightshift. Written with beauty and grace, Nightshift NYC weaves together cultural critique, vivid reportage, and arresting photographs to trace the inverted logic of the city at night. Russell Leigh Sharman and Cheryl Harris Sharman spent a year interviewing and shadowing fry cooks and coffee jockeys, train conductors, cab hacks, and dozens of others who keep the city running when the sun goes down. Investigating familiar places such diners and delis, they explore some less familiar ones as well—taking us on a walking tour of homelessness in Manhattan, onto a fishing boat out of Brooklyn, and into other little-known corners of the night. Traveling past the threshold of voyeurism into the lives of real people, they depict a social space entirely apart—one that is highly structured and inherently subversive. Together, these stories open a compelling view on contemporary urban life and, along the way, reveal the soul of the city itself.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER Julie Holland thought she knew what crazy was. Then she came to Bellevue. For nine eventful years, Dr. Holland was the weekend physician in charge of the psychiatric emergency room at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital. In this absorbing memoir, Holland recounts stories from her vast case files that are alternately terrifying, tragically comic, and profoundly moving: the serial killer, the naked man barking like a dog in Times Square, the schizophrenic begging for an injection of club soda to quiet the voices in his head, the subway conductor who watched a young woman pushed into the path of his train. Writing with uncommon candor, Holland supplies not only a page-turner with all the fast-paced immediacy of a TV medical drama but also a fascinating glimpse into the inner lives of doctors who struggle to maintain perspective in a world where sanity is in the eye of the beholder.
