Discover the action-packed reality aboard a St. John’s Queens Hospital ambulance, where Mike Scardino spent time between semesters as a pre-med student at Vanderbilt University. His experiences as a first responder amount to a personal journey that intersects many subjects: the end of dreams, human suffering, Woodstock, maggots, isolation, a plane crash at JFK, cops and firemen, the streets of New York, eating, nearly getting murdered, ugliness, beauty, racism, the war in Vietnam, the SDS, true love, despair, and hope.

Mike is a native of Elmhurst, Queens. His father was a first-generation Italian Catholic, also from Elmhurst. His mother was a DAR southern Baptist, from Nashville. One grandmother cooked a great deal of grits. The other, quantities of calamari. Mike spent a lot of time in the south but mainly in the north. He moved to Bayside (Queens) from Elmhurst, then to Nashville for 3 years, then back to Bayside, where he attended Bayside High School. He started working at 13 in his father’s gas station in Elmhurst.
