Awakenings

'The story of a disease that plunged its victims into a prison of viscous time, and the drug that catapulted them out of it' Guardian

Hailed as a medical classic, and the subject of a major feature film as well as radio and stage plays and various TV documentaries, Awakenings by Oliver Sacks is the extraordinary account of a group of twenty patients. Rendered catatonic by the sleeping-sickness epidemic that swept the world just after the First World War, all twenty had spent forty years in hospital: motionless and speechless; aware of the world around them, but exhibiting no interest in it - until Dr Sacks administered the then-new drug, L-DOPA, which caused them, temporarily, to awake from their decades-long slumber.

Zitat
"One of the most beautifully composed and moving works of our time." --"The Washington Post ""Compulsively readable. . . . Dr. Sacks writes beautifully and with exceptional subtlety and penetration into both the state of mind of his patients and the nature of illness generally. . . . A brilliant and humane book." --A. Alvarez, "The Observer" "[Sacks] opens to the reader doors of perception generally passed through only by those at the far borders of human experience." --"The Boston Globe ""A masterpiece." --W. H. Auden
