An exhilarating, subversive and mind-bendingly original meta-medical-memoir from the author of Let Me Not Be MadA woman with locked-in syndrome, a naked man discovered on a plane at Heathrow, a taxi driver with memory loss: through three case studies of traumatic brain injury, clinical neuropsychologist A K Benjamin examines the uniquely intimate and deceptive nature of the clinical relationship. Ingenious, daring and perfectly formed, The Case for Love is a dazzlingly original drama about how doctors, like writers, inhabit their patients’ minds, how every work of fiction is, beneath the surface, a form of memoir, and how every act of imagination is, in essence, an act of love.
