A classic from the man who somehow turned medical case histories into a literary genre - the sui generis Oliver Sacks never fails to entertain. Speaking from a place of compassion and curiosity about the most bizarre ailments under the sun, he manages to evoke one's empathy with patients whose disorders place them far from our normal human experience. I can't wait to read his newest book, Musicophillia, when it comes out on paperback.
