BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Personal Memoirs
In the US edition of this international bestseller, Adam Kay channels Henry Marsh and David Sedaris to tell us the "darkly funny" (The New Yorker) -- and sometimes horrifying -- truth about life and work in a hospital.

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.

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER:This Is Going to Hurt has sold more than one million copies in the UK across formats -- and week to week sales are growing. It was the UK's bestselling paperback in 2018.

TV DEAL: Sister Pictures has acquired the television rights to This is Going to Hurt to be written by Adam Kay and aired on BBC Two. A US deal with Netflix is in the works, and the book will benefit greatly from this huge publicity burst.


NEW MATERIAL FOR US AUDIENCES: Kay will be writing a new introduction and updating the footnotes for the US edition that will help smooth over any unfamiliar British terms with his signature wit and style.

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: Kay has won three National Book Awards in the UK: New Writer of the Year, Popular Nonfiction Book of the Year, and the Book Club Book of the Year.

Adam Kay is an award-winning comedian and writer for TV and film. He previously worked for many years as a junior doctor. His first book, This is Going to Hurt was an instant Sunday Times #1 bestseller and has sold 1.5 million copies worldwide. It has been translated into 33 languages and was Book of the Year at the UK National Book Awards. It will be a major new comedy-drama for the BBC. He lives in London.

"Darkly funny... heartbreaking."—The New Yorker

"Hilarious and heartbreaking...I howled, yelped, and occasionally choked with laughter...This book may hurt, but in an important and necessary way."—Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times (London)

"This book is heartbreaking, hilarious and truly important. I believe in its humanity, its spirit and its conscience. The best doctor's visit you will ever have."—Rose McGowan, actress, activist, and New York Times bestselling author of Brave

"Brilliant. Five stars. Amazing."—Mark Haddon, bestselling author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

"Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble, and entirely lovable."—Stephen Fry, actor, comedian, and author of Mythos

"Bloody funny."
Minnie Driver, actress
