Summary

A surgical-stocking filler from the author of record-breaking million copy best seller This Is Going to Hurt.

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat...but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work. In this perfect present for anyone who has ever set foot in a hospital, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious, horrifying and sometimes heartbreaking peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.

Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year.

Less 'objects in orifices' than I was expecting.

Hilarious, just like his first book. I'm hoping there is another coming.

It also makes me really appreciate our NHS and the people that struggle to keep it running in the face of endless cutbacks and criticism.

Bloody loved it!

Absolutely loved ‘This is Going to Hurt’ and wondered if a second book could live up to it ... but it really did. I loved it. An emotional rollercoaster that was so thoughtfully, addictively (couldn’t stop listening) and humorously written. Adam Kay is an all round genius. Thank you to all the NHS staff working around Christmas.
