In the early 1980s, the New Yorker sent the author of Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder to profile neurologist Oliver Sacks. For four years, the two men worked closely together until Sacks asked Lawrence Weschler to abandon the profile. Then, after three decades of friendship, just as Sacks was dying, he urged Weschler to take up the project once again. The result is an unconventional memoir, showcasing Sacks's brilliant table talk and extravagant personality in vivid relief. Here the doctor is seen in his roles of helping his patients and exhausting his friends, pouring out a stream of glorious, ribald, hilarious, and often profound conversation that establishes him as one of the great talkers of the age.
