    A gut punch of a memoir by a doctor – and comedian – whose job is to keep people alive by putting them to sleep.

    Ed Patrick is an anaesthetist. Strong drugs for his patients, strong coffee for him. But it’s not just sleep-giving for this anaesthetist, as he navigates emergencies, patients not breathing for themselves and living with a terrifying sense of responsibility.

    It’s enough to leave anyone feeling numb. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of laughing gas to be had. ‘Very funny, very timely, scary in places.

    Ed writes with wit, insight, surprise and pathos. He is cutting his teeth in anaesthetics, taking people as close to death as you can take them, and then trying to wake them up again. And makes it funny.

    ‘It’s funny, touching and gobsmacking in equal measure. At its heart is a breathtaking account of life on the COVID frontline.’ – Jay Rayner
