Long-listed for the Wales Book of the Year Award, 2011.

Doctor Placebo finds himself at the end of the western intellectual tradition, and on certain mornings feels almost as old. As a medical practitioner he broods about his patients; as a writer he broods about his poems. Sometimes the two intermingle and he can't remember whether he is a doctor moonlighting as a poet, or a poet moonlighting as a doctor. One thing at least remains constant — moonlight. The end of the western intellectual tradition, like Placebo himself, is insomniac.
