Caroline Fish Reviews The Angina Monologues by Rosamund Kendal

The Angina MonologuesVerdict: carrot

When reading The Angina Monologues, about the ordeals and triumphs of three interns with different backgrounds facing the challenges of nursing in a rural hospital in KwaZulu-Natal, I didn’t know whether I was reading fiction or local newspapers.

Rachel comes from a wealthy Jewish family and a luxurious life of pedicures, spa treatments and shopping sprees. As a medical intern she finds herself in an environment of poverty, illness and survival. Her parents want her to drop the internship for an opportunity to study abroad.
