WEEKENDS AT BELLEVUE Nine years on the night shift at the psych ER

by | Read by Julie Holland

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

As author and narrator, Julie Holland characterizes a bizarre cast of patients—schizophrenics, potential suicides, and those who think they’re possessed by spirits—whom she met as admitting physician of the psychiatric emergency room of Bellevue hospital , in New York City. She also portrays the hospital staff, including arrogant doctors, kooky social workers, and supportive nurses. Turning a witty, astute lens on herself, she reveals an array of personal struggles—fear of a stalker, the death of a colleague, the challenges of staying sane while working with the insane. Holland's ironic and self-mocking tones and her varied accents are as engaging as her stories. Though her writing is sometimes disjointed, her reading pacing is exquisite.
