Adam Kay

Adam Kay is a British writer, comedian and former doctor. Kay studied and trained at Imperial College School of Medicine in London, during which time he also wrote for BBC Radio 4 and founded the musical comedy group Amateur Transplants. Kay worked as an obstetrician and gynaecologist for several years before embarking on a full-time career as a comedian and writer.

In 2017, Kay published his first, phenomenally successful book This is Going to Hurt, in which he vividly describes his experiences as a Junior Doctor in the NHS. The book became an instant bestseller and has won several awards, including the Book of the Year in the UK’s 2018 National Book Awards. It was followed by Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas - a celebration of the hard-working heroes of the NHS during the festive season. His most recent book Kay’s Anatomy was published in October 2020.

The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, well ... pretty weird. Yours is weird, mine is weird, your maths teacher’s is even weirder. This book is going to tell you what’s actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like:

Are bogies safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its nutritional value. (Yes, they’re safe. Chew away!)
