A Bizarre Comedy
Author: Dr I Mayputz
This book is about a slightly fictionalized account of my life in dental school, inspired by actual events. Embellishments of strange happenings were unnecessary because human foibles ran rampant. However, all names and places have been changed so as not to embarrass the guilty, inept and downright scurvy. The stories are retold in a series of vignettes which best captured my mood at the time. These mostly bizarre and anguishing tales are set amidst a sea of often absurd and pressure-filled unrealistic expectations. But the heavy emotional carnage did have snippets of humor mixed in, which kept me relatively sane and enthusiastic. The end result was being called a Doctor! Was all the stress and aggravation worth it? The jury is still out as to whether I would have done it all over again.
