Vincent Lam | Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures | IntroductionOne character is hired by an insurance company that sends planes into foreign countries to bring back the injured, the dead, or the nearly dead. As in any collection, some parts shine less brightly than others. The stories Lam sets in the ER feel weakest. Television has already fully milked the frenzy of the ER, and a recent book by Texan physician Frank Huyler, The Blood of Strangers , broke the experience into fragments of lyricism and understated poetry. He presents an interconnected web of patients and doctors — the damaged and those barely keeping it together to care for them. There is Fitzgerald, the young doctor who cannot stop his drinking habit from taking over his life, and Chen, called upon to ease his elderly grandfather toward death.
