Customer Review

on 27 May 2013
Over the years I've heard Malcolm Brabant report for the BBC on events in Greece, the US and the wars of Yugoslav secession, and while reading this book I had to keep reminding myself that what he was recounting here in such detail had actually happened to him - and is, to a great extent, still happening as his ordeal is not over. In writing this immensely readable and moving account of what followed a seemingly routine yellow fever jab, Malcolm Brabant has not only chronicled the nightmarish confusion and obfuscation that have accompanied his search for justice: he has also been mercilessly frank about mental illness, while revealing just how easily a stroke of fate can turn anyone's life upside-down. It wouldn't be Brabant without some humour, though it can be pretty dark humour. Read it, and be grateful if you haven't been where he's had to go.
