A man's wife dies. What next? The next day is next and the next and so on. He smothers his sorrow and gets on with the days. He's a stoic. Tranquillity is the goal, 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 realize, his brain is struggling to make sense of him - probing, doubting, reconstructing. Combining neurological case stories and memoir and with excursions into speculative fiction and mythology, this is an audacious original, deeply personal meditation on grief, time and selfhood.
