Fresh from his sell-out show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, we are delighted to be joined by writer and comedian Adam Kay for the release of his new book ‘This Is Going To Hurt’.
‘Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory.’ Jo Brand
‘What an amazing book. I laughed so hard and often I nearly choked.’ Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of ‘A Manual For Heartache’
As a result of his time working as a junior doctor Adam has written a first-hand account of life from the front line of the NHS in all its joy, pain, sacrifice, horror and maddening bureaucracy. Interspersed with honest, and at times horrifying, real-life tales as well as reflections on the current Health Care crisis, ‘This Is Going To Hurt’ is a humorous and compassionate examination of the everyday heroism of NHS staff.
For everything you wanted to know about being a junior doctor – and more than a few things you wish you didn’t! – join us with Adam on Wednesday 4th October, 7pm at Corbridge Cricket Club, The Stanners, Corbridge.
Tickets are the usual £5, which includes a glass of wine or something soft. For ticket bookings call us on 01434 632931 or pop into Forum Books, 8 Market Place, Corbridge, NE45 5AW
We look forward to seeing you!
