Review quote

'As lunatic and splenetic and distinctive as anything that will be published this year ... I begin to suspect she may be some sort of genius' Daily Telegraph 'It is somehow hard not to be optimistic in the hands of a writer so angry and intelligent ... Doctors & Nurses is a novel bracingly alive, making more polite books cadaverous by comparison' Guardian 'Both a howl of rage and an absolute scream ... a short, sharp tale of lust, self-loathing and involuntary euthanasia, with the emotional volume cranked right up throughout and the jokes coming thick and fast. Ingenious and hilarious' Time Out 'Hilariously, eye-wateringly funny ... I have found a new hero in Lucy Ellmann' Scotsman
