Into the Silent Land

£2.99

Product description

'Genius... personal, poetic and truthful. It reads as light as a souffle, yet also has the resonant depth to haunt you for the rest of your days.' Guardian
Into the Silent Land marks the debut of an astonishing new voice. Paul Broks draws on his many years as a neuropsychologist to present an unforgettable narrative about memory and personal identity. Into the Silent Land describes ordinary people whose extraordinary situations have much to teach us about chance, compassion and human resilience in the face of adversity. It is a book that penetrates the reader's imagination and lingers in the memory long after the final page.
'Paul Brok's wonderful book... is full of wonders and unsettling new perspectives.' Independent on Sunday
'A beautifully written addition to brain literature... will mesmerise anyone curious about the mass of goo inside our heads.' Time Out, Book of the Week
'A debut of considerable distinction.' Sunday Times
'Paul Broks is set to be the new Oliver Sacks... knife edge sharp and uncompromising. Brilliantly unsettling' Ian Finlayson, The Times
'Into the SilentLand is a small, strange, beautiful gem... Broks is as much poet as scientist... Indelible' Atul Gawande, author of Complications
