Christmas Book of the Day
Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas
Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a short gift book of festive diaries from Adam Kay, the author of multi-million-copy bestseller This is Going to Hurt.
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat . . . but 1.4 million NHS staff are heading off to work. In this perfect present for anyone who has ever set foot in a hospital, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious, horrifying and sometimes heartbreaking peek behind the blue curtain at Christmas time.
This is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year. (Description from Amazon.co.uk)
