Genre: Humour/Life Story
Full Metal Cardigan by David Emery
Last week, social services referred their client who, once accepted to our team, became a service user and, on further review by the doctor, a patient.
He was found not to meet the eligibility criteria; he was a survivor but not with the right symptoms, an expert but with the wrong experience.
He was promptly discharged and ended the day as just a person.
Full Metal Cardigan is David Emery s first book and chronicles his adventures in social care, from enthusiastic volunteer to feral frontline worker, taking in abusive popstars, chanting cults, drug runs and interviewing a corpse.
He recounts how he gained international notoriety for cheating in a pancake race, encounters with the supernatural, High Court appearances, accidentally booking someone into Dignitas, one-inch death punches in Woolworths, waterboarding, psychotic psychopaths, plunger-wielding pregnant women and suicide attempts with rhubarb along the way.
This is a humorous look at life as a social worker: in turns both laugh-out-loud funny and mind-boggling.
