Beschreibung:

A Few Loose Screws follows the farcical adventures of a toilet company heir, Ogden Wellborn IV, whose birthright is one of great wealth and position, though his capacities for taking advantage of that good fortune don't happen to include intellectual prowess or good sense. His tragicomic bumblings include getting an M.D. degree by scheming his way through medical school; using family connections to enter a neurosurgery program for which he is remarkably unqualified; marrying well----or at least satisfyingly----to twenty-year-old stripper Bubbles McFarland; and, after the spectacular collapse of his neurosurgery ambitions, deciding to cap his career by finally doing something he thinks will be easy. So he becomes a Registered Nurse----and quickly learns how wrong he was about "easy," since soon he is stumbling over his own feet again. This madcap tale----authentic in its details of the medical field because the author is a successful surgeon----moves swiftly from one hilarious event to the next, exploring the life of an eternally optimistic simpleton who can't win for losing or build things up without wrecking them first, but who eventually finds peace of mind and a place for himself----far away from the complexities of the modern world.
