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.
