I was hesitant to start this book, having been disappointed in the ‘letter’ style of memoir previously. I am very happy to say that it was definitely not the case with this excellent memoir. The stories are well written and presented, and highly engaging. I didn’t want to put the book down, and was sad when I finished it. If you enjoy medical memoirs, I can highly recommend this book. I hope the author, Dr Crocker, writes a sequel. I have recommended it to all my fellow members of a memoir reading group on FB.
