Book 1 - Warts and All
If You Faint, Fall Backwards! Medicine: Warts and All
If you Faint, Fall Backwards, combines eccentricity, humour, larger than life characters
and a taste of life as it used to be Australia in the sixties and seventies.
These stories follow Frank's progress through medical school in Melbourne and Tasmania
where he trained as a resident at the LGH and then became a general practitioner in
Launceston's northern suburbs.
Heart warming, funny and sometimes wrenching, the spectrum of one doctor's early
experiences is here, told in an open and engaging way that is sure to make you feel
like he is sitting you down and telling you a great yarn.
The book was edited by Dr Christine Couche, one of Franks daughters. Christine obtained
a PH.D in English Literature from the University of Western Australia in 1996. A lot of
Christine's editing has been communicated via email and phone.
The book has been illustrated by Josie Riches
Tasmania Artist. It is the first book Josie has illustrated.
