Head of Zeus are delighted to be offering 5 hardback copies of The Ministry of Bodies by Seamus O’Mahony to 5 reading groups.
Seamus O’Mahony charts the realities of work in the ‘ministry of bodies’, that huge complex where people come to be cured and to die. From unexpected deaths to moral quandaries and bureaucratic disasters, O’Mahony documents life in the halls and wards that all of us will visit at some point in our lives with his characteristic wit and dry and unsentimental intelligence.
Absurd general emails, vain and self-promoting specialists, the relentless parade of self-destructive drinkers and drug users, the comical expectations of baffled patients: this is not a conventional medical memoir, but the collective biography of one of our great modern institutions – the general hospital – through the eyes of a brilliant writer, who happens to be a doctor.
