Beschreibung

Lyrical, violent, and surprisingly passionate, Skels is an inventive yet realistic portrait of the urban underworld from a paramedic's point of view. The story is based on an unusual idea: What would happen if the ambulance world was permeated with the works of past authors, and the homeless patients (the "skels") carried the consciousness of the writers? What would a paramedic do if she met a great poet, dirty and covered with lice, and was granted the chance to save him - not from dying but from his own life? A funny, gritty urban thriller, Skels pits corrupt cops, bumbling firemen, drunken softball tournaments, and careening transvestites against this surreal literary environment, realistically portraying a New York City of 1979 rich with an ancient truth that is all but invisible from the outside. The characters within it must face brutality and illness, vengeance and despair, and find help in tenderness and the threads that connect them to the past.

Pressestimmen

"A vivid rendering of the lives of New York's poorest and most invisible." - New York Post "Skels conveys the overwhelming feelings one has during epic moments of tragedy." - LA Weekly "Maggie Dubris has saved a thousand lives, not only in the streets of Hell's Kitchen where we worked as paramedics, but in the breathtaking lines of this book. Her poetry shines in the darkest places." - Joe Connelly, author of Bringing Out the Dead "Dubris' New York has everything to do with the real world. Skels floats completely free of those painful, tiresome conversations about who we're supposed to be." - New York Times"
