For Jon Sarkin, it all began with a sudden jolt in the brain while he was playing a quiet round of golf. Surgeons remedied the resulting excruciating pain with radical deep-brain surgery that radically changed his personality, diminished his sense of self-identity, and then somehow activated a previously absent urge to create. In this fascinating narrative, two-time Pulitzer finalist Amy Ellis Nutt takes you through the creation of an "accidental artist" whose transformation offers telling hints about the links between brain and soul. A natural for readers of Oliver Sacks.
