Doctor Is Sick

Novel, Speculative fiction by Anthony Burgess


"Fine, sly, rich comedy. . . "―The New York Times Book Review

Dr. Edwin Spindrift has been sent home from Burma with a brain tumor. Closer to words than to people, his sense of reality is further altered by his condition. When he escapes from the hospital the night before his surgery, things and people he hardly knew existed outside of his dictionaries swoop down on him as he careens through adventures in nighttime London.
