A collection of stories (based on actual case studies) that explores a variety of neurological disorders and their extraordinary effects on the minds and lives of the people afflicted.
In the title story, for example, the author describes a patient—an accomplished and respected musician—who has lost the ability to visually distinguish objects, and so mistakes his wife’s head for a hat. These strange and compelling stories illustrate how the human spirit’s resilience and resourcefulness can help people adjust to lives complicated by everything from loss of memory to autism.
