The eagerly anticipated debut novel by the highly visible author of "The Blair Years"
Martin Sturrock desperately needs a psychiatrist. The problem? He is one. Alastair Campbell, critically-acclaimed author of the bestselling memoir "The Blair Years," offers much more than a glimpse into the mind of a man who is supposed to be helping heal other people's minds.
Emily is a burn victim. Arta is a Kosovan refugee recovering from rape. David is a longterm depressive, while Ralph is a Member of Parliament who lives in terror that his drinking problem will be exposed. Very different Londoners who share one thing: they all spend an hour each week with Professor Martin Sturrock, their psychiatrist. Little do they know that their doctor's own mind is not the reassuring place they imagine it to be. For years he has hidden in his work, ignoring his demons. But now his life is falling apart, and the only person he can turn to is a patient.
Comic in many ways, Alastair Campbell's first novel is rich in compassion. It is utterly gripping in its portrait of the human mind.
