As he works his way through his medical training, Ike Anya’s grandmother reassures him, ‘Everything worthwhile is achieved small by small.’

Small by Small charts the triumphs and failures of Ike’s student days through to his first demanding year as a house officer. A medical memoir unlike any from the West, this is filled with the colour and vibrancy of tempestuous 1990s Nigeria, where political unrest, social change and a worsening economy make a doctor’s life particularly challenging.

Full of compassion and insight, often humorous and always moving, this is a unique doctor’s journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A small miracle of a book. It entertains with delicious storytelling, and leaves us feeling moved and satisfied, and all in a beautifully unhurried way.

An uplifting story of hope and ambition vividly recalled. Filled with fascinating characters and insights.

I raced to the end of this richly evocative memoir of the challenges of training as a doctor in 90s Nigeria. It’s a good corrective to This is Going to Hurt.

A marvellously rich and lucid account of a doctor’s journey, clear-eyed and compassionate.

Anya’s wit is sharp, his humour gentle and his insights are so clearly based on an abounding curiosity and a deeply held compassion for his fellow humans.

Beautifully told.

A rich, alive and warm masterpiece.
