A man's wife dies. What next? He smothers his sorrow and gets on with the days, but his brain won't rest. As a neuropsychologist he has spent a career trying to fathom the human brain, but now, he comes to realise, his brain is struggling to make sense of him. Combining neurological case stories and memoir, and with excursions into speculative fiction and mythology, this is a deeply personal meditation on grief, time and selfhood.
