Bringing Out the Dead (1998) written by Joe Connelly
Bringing Out the Dead (Book)
Bringing Out the Dead is autobiographical in nature and follows the story of a paranoid and hollow-eyed paramedic who works the graveyard shift in Hell's Kitchen, the barrio bounding the phantasmagoria of Times Square.
Having seen so much human suffering on the job, the main character of the book, Frank, has turned emotionally into himself, despondent to the point of becoming a drunk, his life a personal living hell.
