Small by Small: Becoming a Doctor in 1990s Nigeria



‘A small miracle of a book. It entertains with delicious storytelling.’ - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

As he works his way through his medical training, Ike Anya’s grandmother reassures him,

Everything worthwhile is achieved small by small.

Ike’s story charts the triumphs and failures of his student days through to his first demanding year as a house officer. A medical memoir unlike any from the West, this is filled with the colour and vibrancy of tempestuous 1990s Nigeria, where political unrest, social change and a worsening economy make a doctor’s life particularly challenging.

‘Anya’s wit is sharp, his humour gentle and his insights are so clearly based on an abounding curiosity and a deeply held compassion for his fellow humans.’ -Ellah Wakatama
