by | Read by John Keating

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This charming narrative about a medical practice in rural Ireland began as a monthly entitled “Stitches: The Journal of Medical Humor.” Narrator John Keating has a field day with the humor, long-winded stories, and colorful accents. It's the '60s, so there's a Volkswagen named Brunhilde and, of course, the Beatles. Dr. LaVerty's sweet romance with Patricia is sharply observed (and commented on) by the entire village. A cat named Lady Macbeth and Mrs. Kincaid the housekeeper add to the fun. Keating skillfully presents the unique and sometimes-hilarious Irish take on joy, sorrow, illness, and death.
