This is Going to Hurt (His Wrist) – UK book signing tour for Adam Kay

Adam Kay‘s journal, This is Going to Hurt is released on 7th September, and to celebrate, the former Doctor turned satirical, musical comedian, is touring the UK across the Autumn.

The often hilarious, at times horrifying and occasionally heartbreaking diaries of a former junior doctor, and the story of why he decided to hang up his stethoscope follows hot on the heels of Adam’s sold-out return to Edinburgh Fringe in August, and is published by Picador in both hardback and Kindle formats.

Adam will be appearing at 25 places across the UK between 14th September and 11th November, signing copies of the book and presumably answering any questions people may have about it for good measure. You can catch him at the following locations in the coming weeks:
