Soon to be an AMC+ series starring Ben Whishaw
The acclaimed multimillion-copy bestseller, This Is Going to Hurt is Adam Kay's equally blisteringly funny (Boston Globe) and "heartbreaking" (New Yorker) memoir of his years as a young doctor.
Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships. Welcome to the life of a first-year doctor.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights, and missed weekends, comedian and former medical resident Adam Kay's This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the front lines of medicine.
Hilarious, horrifying, and heartbreaking by turns, this is everything you wanted to know--and more than a few things you didn't--about life on and off the hospital ward.
And yes, it may leave a scar.
