Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A heartening, laugh-out-loud confessional.” Financial Times (London)
“Kay’s journals chart the hectic life of a young doctor who tries to help patients without mucking up, suffers over mistakes, and celebrates the times he was able to make a difference. Readers may be inclined to send their own doctors a thank-you note after reading this candid, caring memoir. A bestseller in England, Kay’s book is being adapted for a BBC comedy drama.” Booklist (starred review)
“Shocking, sad, funny, and alarming…Kay’s book is vital and timely.” The Scotsman (Edinburgh)
“A heartening, laugh-out-loud confessional..Kay’s warts-and-all account will not only bring plenty of laughs but also delivers a moving report.” Financial Times (London)
“Hilariously gruesome.” Sunday Times (London)
