About the book
Thank you to Yamkela for the review copy
I realise I am boarding this train late (What's new Kelly). Rosamund Kendal brings South African fiction at its best to the foot of your door. There is nothing I love more than picking up a book from my local fiction pile and thriving on it for a week.
Grey’s Anatomy and Table Mountain as its back drop, with a highly-strung 20 something doctor trying to decipher her place in the world of medicine. I loved the book from word 1 till I hesitatingly put it back on my bookshelf. I laughed, cried, gagged and held my breath all at a woman trying to figure out what makes a good doctor, a good woman and a good friend?
Kendal explores Cape Town through a very different backdrop, yes our heroine wines and dines in the larny restaurants, she also gets knee deep in what is typically South Africa’s medical system: No funds, sick mothers and dying children. Gosh it’s no wonder Dr Sue Carey can barely figure what she wants when witnessing the horrors of Aids, Witch Doctors and drunken brawls.
So go! Get this book now, run, fight and gnaw your way to the shelves of your nearest bookstore for this one. A perfect, feel-good book for 2012.
About the Author
Rosamund Kendal decided that the creative side of her brain needed some stimulation and enrolled for the Masters degree in creative writing at UCT. She hasn’t been able to decide whether she prefers being a freelance writer or a general practitioner, so she’s come to a compromise and does both part-time.
