For the first time in 192 years, the name of James Lambert was heard in the home of the oldest medical society in London.
He remains the only Fellow to have been thrown out in its 250 years.
Over fifty gathered in the Fellows Room of the beautiful Georgian building that has been the Society’s home since 1873 to hear Max Eilenberg (ex-editor at Michael Joseph and Faber & Faber) talk about the book.
This was followed by my reflections of how it came about and my first experience of fiction writing after a lifetime of non-fiction.
Maybe the start of James’s rehabilitation and the recognition he deserves.
