Lister Ward describes life in a Victorian hospital from the sharp end of the scalpel - the scalpel, no less, of the legendary Joseph Lister. The book is based upon the diaries and letters of two of Lister's "guinea pigs": William Henley from London, a professional writer and self-confessed hedonist, and Shetlander Margaret Mathewson, the pious daughter of a parish teacher. Together with an account by one of Lister's students, an extract from one of Conan Doyle's stories and notes from Robert Louis Stevenson they paint a fascinating picture of a bygone era in an Edinburgh hospital and provide an unusual insight into one of the pioneers of modern medicine.

He would have stopped it, Goldblatt knew, if only the call from the other hospital
had first come to him. He didn't know how, but he would have stopped it. Often, in
later weeks, listening to Mr Lister pour out his endless complaints, Goldblatt ...

Angry, satirical, hilarious and eventually heartbreaking, Goldblatt's Descent tells the story of a young, talented hospital doctor, an idealist in a very imperfect world. A biting, brilliant, black tragicomedy of doctors, patients, lost hopes and last chances. Malcolm Goldblatt has one last chance. Life, or his own obstinacy, has dumped him at the door of Professor Andrea Small's medical unit, where he will have the privilege of ministering to the world's most unimportant disease. But in so many ways, this unit is like all the others that Goldblatt has worked on, from Dr Madic's ferocious aversion to work, to Dr Burton's knife-in-the-back ambition, right up to the monstrous vanities of the professor herself - and that's before he even meets the patients. Soon the familiar cycle of hope and despair threatens to drag him into its eddy, and with his finger never far from the self-destruct button, the temptation to press it for what will surely be the final time begins to feel less like professional suicide and more like salvation.
I knew vaguely that Lister was married, that he had children not much younger
than I, but in a way that only fed my romantic fantasy. He didn't mention her often,
but when he did, Lister described his wife as cold. He said she had not let him
