Summary
Dr James Barry: Inspector General of Hospitals, army surgeon, duellist, reformer, lady killer, eccentric. He performed the first Caesarean in Africa, was deported from St Helena and gave Florence Nightingale a dressing down in the Crimea. At home, he was surrounded by a menagerie of animals, including a cat, a goat, a parrot and half a dozen small terriers. Long ago, in another life, he had also been a mother. This is the amazing true story of Margaret Ann Bulkey, the young woman who broke the rules of Georgian society to become one of the most respected surgeons of the century
