Doctor on the Ball
First there is the actor who confuses himself with his character. Then comes the man suffering from amnesia...and the housewife who has spent all day wrestling with her washing machine. This is all in a day's work for the local GP in a Kentish town. Yet having done this for twenty-five years Richard Gordon could surely be forgiven for occasionally hankering after an early retirement. This hilarious novel relates the incidents and events in a hapless GP's life - misadventures that have somehow prevented him from once and for all exchanging his stethoscope for a fishing rod.
