“It is Dr. Sacks’s gift that he has found a way to enlarge our experience and understanding of what the human is.” —The Wall Street Journal

Oliver Sacks’s empathetic understanding and compelling storytelling ability have turned his accounts of his patients and his own life into literature, as evidenced in “Uncle Tungsten,” “Stinks and Bangs,” and “Cannery Row” from Uncle Tungsten; the foreword and “Rose R.” from Awakenings; “A Deaf World” from Seeing Voices; “A Surgeon’s Life” from An Anthropologist on Mars; “The Visions of Hildegard” from Migraine; and excerpts from “Island Hopping” and “Pingelap” from The Island of the Colorblind.
