‘What a remarkable book this is; tender, funny, brave, heartfelt, radiant with love and life. It brought me often to laughter and – several times – to tears. It sings with joy and kindness’ Robert Macfarlaneon Rachel Clarke’s latest publication Breathtaking
We’re delighted to announce our first Borrowed Time keynote event with a talk by Dr. Rachel Clarke who achieved acclaim not just for her outspoken and fearless advocacy for her fellow Junior Doctors during their national strike in 2016, but for her subsequent publications Dear Life, a doctor’s story of love and loss(2017), Your Life in my Hands: a Junior Doctor’s Story (2020) any most recently Breathtaking: inside the NHS in a Time of Pandemic (2021). The Sunday Times says that Rachel ‘writes with a tender, lyrical beauty; The Guardian in a similar vein describes her words as ‘brimful of love, grace and kindness’.
