But any Briton brought up on the folk-legends of Doctor in the House will be unsurprised at its revelations: surgery is unpredictable; sometimes a doctor acts on a hunch he can’t logically justify, and turns out to be right; diseases run in fashions; surgeons can go to pieces, drink, lose their nerve, foul things up.’ Michael Bywater, Telegraph Arts and Books ‘With outstanding honesty Complications recognises the need for doctors as well as patients to acknowledge the limits of medical science without losing their trust in themselves, or each other.’
