Michael Foxton’s riotously candid memoir of his adventures as a junior doctor has established itself as a classic.

Vivid, hilarious and often alarming, his book has gone on to find a cult following among doctors and patients alike. His observations illuminate the quirks, horrors and delights of all aspects of doctoring, from casualty to the psychiatric ward.

Foxton tells us what it really feels like to be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week and introduces us to a mixed cast of patient that includes the rude, the violent and the outrageously flirtatious. Bedside Stories has become a comic classic.
