    Abstract

    Book synopsis: The end of the world doesn’t come with a bang or a whimper, but with the chukka-chukka-chukka of a helicopter coming in to land… Welcome to Hospital! Hospital is about blue murder and saving lives, having sex and surgery, falling in love and falling from a great height, crazy voodoo and hypnotic surveillance — it’s about the last days and the first days. And the Rubber Nurse knows you’ve been very naughty and is going to teach you a well-deserved lesson. It’s the story of a lost boy wandering the corridors of a strange, antiseptic building, looking and hoping for a chance to get home. And also of a man who won’t wake up despite the best efforts of the hospital staff – and while he sleeps, a threatening darkness settles over everything… Hospital is a novel of healing and hell, and it’s the only proper response to the crazy times we live in. The Rubber Nurse will see you now…
