Recensioner i media

Brutally funny . . . jaw-dropping * New Statesman * At once hilarious and shocking, moving and irreverent, This Is Going to Hurt is a book that demands to be read. Adam Kay's deft comic tone is a brilliant counterpoint to his most serious of intents: to impress upon us the importance of the NHS in our lives and the irreversible damage being inflicted upon it by indifferent governments. -- Maggie O'Farrell The humour is unflinching in its darkness . . . Yet I did laugh. A lot. Kay is a skilful, muscular writer, his narrative swinging from laugh-out- loud anecdotes to tales of sheer horror. The book's title is harrowingly apt . . . In the end, this book is a call to arms. That the NHS lost Kay is a tragedy. That this diary was written well before the Government's battle with junior doctors is more disturbing still' * Independent * All of human life is contained in these diaries . . . hilarious, horrifying * Prima * Brilliant -- Mark Haddon, author of <i>The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time</i> This is a brilliant book -- Russell Howard Laugh-out-loud funny . . . I found myself laughing in horror over and over, but Kay's poignant final act brought me to tears. This is a valuable window into the life of a junior doctor that should be required reading for all -- Sarah Shaffi * Stylist * Hilarious . . . a complete eye-opener * Red * A heartening, laugh-out-loud confessional on the indignities and quiet joys of being a junior doctor . . . Anchoring the wisecracks is Kay's heartfelt respect for Britain's junior doctors and the ignoble realities of a noble profession. At a time of anxiety over the future of the NHS, Kay's warts-and-all account will not only bring plenty of laughs but also delivers a moving report from the NHS's embattled frontline' * Financial Times * Blisteringly funny, politically enraging and often heartbreaking . . . hilarious . . . There is also a huge amount of pathos . . . This is a book brimming not just with humour but with humanity. Kay describes with visceral honesty the sacrifices made by junior doctors . . . This should be a wake-up call to all who value the NHS -- Hannah Beckerman * Sunday Express * Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . I howled, yelped and occasionally choked with laughter . . . It's an invigorating addition to the vogue for medical memoirs. I like to think of it sitting on a shelf next to Henry Marsh, Atul Gawande and Paul Kalanithi, turning the air bluer and bluer. It has something of all those writers, but with an added dash of a profane Adrian Mole . . . This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way -- Cathy Rentzenbrink * The Times * Funny, tragic, uplifting and brimming with bodily fluids (sorry) . . . Kay makes for a compelling bedfellow as he explores the terrifying world of the amazing men and women (just about) holding the NHS together -- Francesca Brown * Stylist * Stayed up half the night laughing out loud over painfully smart, honest doctor diaries -- Emma Donoghue, author of <i>Room</i> Things I have done while reading this book: laughed aloud (too many times to count), read a passage to a stranger on a train (this was perhaps inadvisable but could not be helped), been consistently bowled over by the detail of Dr Kay's sharp prose & remarkably observant journey in a job so many of us have no real understanding of. It's an important book, a boots-on-the-ground memoir true to its title-but it's a good hurt I was left with upon turning the last page, the kind that resonates with empathy and consequence -- Ryan Gattis, author of <i>Safe</i> and <i>All Involved</i> Hilarious, poignant, depressing and shocking. Kay is such a brilliantly talented writer he manages to be both deadly serious and hilarious at the same time. Piles of this book should be in every GP surgery waiting room and A&E department in the country. Heartbreaking, dazzling, brutally honest -- Bridget Christie An urgent, devastating yet tr
