About Adam Kay: Undoctored 

During his time as a junior doctor, Adam Kay kept a secret diary, but that was only part of the story. With the painfully funny and shockingly impactful follow-up, Undoctored, Adam Kay reflects on what has occurred since hanging up his scrubs and examines the medicine life in his most honest and incisive story yet. After his time as a junior doctor, Kay is battered and bruised. Undoctored is the astounding portrait of a life painted by one of Britain's most beloved storytellers. It is funny and heartbreaking, horrifying and humbling. Doctors normally stitch wounds, but here Adam opens them back up.
