i Awakenings i which inspired the major motion picture is the remarkable story of a group of patients who contracted sleeping sickness during the great epidemic just after World War I Frozen for decades in a trance like state these men and women were given up as hopeless until when Dr Oliver Sacks gave them the then new drug L DOPA which had an astonishing explosive awakening effect Dr Sacks recounts the moving case histories of his patients their lives and the extraordinary transformations which went with their reintroduction to a changed world, In his most extraordinary book one of the great clinical writers of the twentieth century i The New York Times i recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders Oliver Sacks s i The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat i tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities whose limbs have become alien who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents br br If inconceivably strange these brilliant tales remain in Dr Sacks s splendid and sympathetic telling deeply human They are studies of life struggling against incredible adversity and they enable us to enter the world of the neurologically impaired to imagine with our hearts what it must be to live and feel as they do A great healer Sacks never loses sight of medicine s ultimate responsibility the suffering afflicted fighting human subject, Like b The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat b this is a fascinating voyage into a strange and wonderful land a provocative meditation on communication biology adaptation and culture In b Seeing Voices b Oliver Sacks turns his attention to the subject of deafness and the result is a deeply felt portrait of a minority struggling for recognition and respect a minority with its own rich sometimes astonishing culture and unique visual language an extraordinary mode of communication that tells us much about the basis of language in hearing people as well b Seeing Voices b is as Studs Terkel has written an exquisite as well as revelatory work, In Musicophilia Oliver Sacks explored music and the brain now in The Mind s Eye he writes about the myriad ways in which we experience the visual world how we see in three dimensions how we recognize individual faces or places how we use language to communicate verbally how we translate marks on paper into words and paragraphs and even how we represent the world internally when our eyes are closed Alongside remarkable stories of people who have lost these abilities but adapted with courage resilience and ingenuity there is an added personal element one day in late Sacks became aware of a dazzling flashing light in one part of his visual field it was not the familiar migraine aura he had experienced since childhood and just two days later a malignant tumor in one eye was diagnosed In subsequent journal entries some of which are included in The Mind s Eye he chronicled the experience of living with cancer recording both the effects of the tumor itself and radiation therapy In turning himself into a case history Sacks has given us perhaps his most intimate impressive and insightful no pun intended book yet
