Isabel Read this book while in hospital almost a year ago. Probably not the best place to be reading some of the more graphic surgical scenes. It's an incredible book, though. Well written by someone who is obviously a surgeon (isn't he?). And I learned a lot about Ethiopia.
Just loaned it to a friend who whizzed through it in a few days and can't stop talking about it. You'll enjoy this.

Tony Johnston I look forward to it!

I am in the middle of a slow-to-read historical non-fiction phase (King Edward III at the moment) but I have put this in my Amazon basket ready for when my inclination changes again...
