We glimpsed their weary faces as the nation’s hospitals overflowed into tents, heard their tales of the heart-wrenching moments when they were left alone to comfort dying patients in quarantine and cheered them, from a distance, for the dangers and sacrifices they weathered.
Now, in their new book, E.R. Nurses, James Patterson and Matt Eversmann celebrate the extraordinary women and men who were saving our lives long before Covid-19 turned our world upside down.
They join us to honor the nurses who are at their best when we’re at our worst with moving behind-the-scenes stories that run the gamut from the tragic to the hilarious, in conversation with Sebastian Junger.
The mega bestselling author of thrillers, nonfiction, and romance novels, James Patterson has written 242 bestsellers, most recently a thriller with President Bill Clinton.
Coauthor with Patterson of Walk in My Combat Boots. Matt Eversmann was a member of the special forces unit whose daring survival story was immortalized in Black Hawk Down.
Sebastian Junger is an award-winning journalist, author and filmmaker most noted for his book The Perfect Storm, a New York Times #1 bestseller. He has won the National Magazine Award and the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
