When a marine fungus fouls the air ducts of S.I.C. Memorial, Dr. Hubert Humperdinck, a surfing, goof-ball anesthesiologist, gets the blame. An oil sheik offers $200 million to rebuild the hospital, an offer matched by a Catholic charity. As Muslims battle Christians over naming rights, Hubert becomes a patient himself and must deal with a mad neurosurgeon, Mexican drug cartels, and his angry wife.
"A fast-paced, whimsical satire of the modern world. There is never a dull moment, and everywhere the prose sparkles with innovation, quiet revelation, and penetrating social insight."
John A. Murray, senior editor, The Bloomsbury Review
