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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This deeply funny diatribe about life in an NHS hospital, which in the best traditions of Herriot, might be subtitled It Shouldn't Happen To A Doctor.' Daily Mail

'Foxton manages to draw black comedy out of the most appalling anecdote, and Bedside Stories is often extremely funny.' Phil Whitaker, Guardian

'Full of entertaining opinions you sense the apprentice doctor wished he could have vented at the time... If the writers of 'Six Feet Under' were let loose in A&E instead of morgues, if Basil Fawlty had gone into hospitals instead of hotels, well, picture the grim comedy.'
