While I'm Here, Doctor
by Doctor Charles
As a doctor - he tells tales of his life serving as a doctor within the Royal Airforce, stories of patients with miracle ailments, and, almost inevitably, a tale featuring a man with an alien object stuck where the sun doesn't shine.
Doctor Charles' reserved wit comes through clearly in this perfectly clipped and genteel collection. While I'm Here, Doctor is splendidly smart, ever so British.
