More > days. Used bed linen intersperses with uncollected dinner trays. In the early 1990s, thousands of people – patients, doctors, nurses, families – struggle to get through each day as Cook County Hospital literally crumbles around them. County follows a new doctor as she hesitantly steps into this chaos. By turns funny and heart-breaking, the story introduces us to Lu, a sexy nurse with HIV, Eugene, adept at avoiding the authorities who want to treat his drug-resistant tuberculosis, and Lunelle, a patient who offers to riot when the hospital administration threatens to close the doctor’s clinic. In time, the doctor learns the meaning of courage, loss, and – especially – love. Written as a narrative poem to impose structure on this pandemonium, County is a tour de force of rhyme, meter, and storytelling.< Less
