For fans of Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt, A gut punch of a memoir by a doctor – and comedian – whose job is to keep people alive by putting them to sleep. Ed Patrick is an anaesthetist.

Strong drugs for his patients, strong coffee for him. But it’s not just sleep-giving for this anaesthetist, as he navigates emergencies, patients not breathing for themselves and living with a terrifying sense of responsibility. It’s enough to leave anyone feeling numb.

But don’t worry, there’s plenty of laughing gas to be had.
