Becstarr : Is in love with Oliver Sacks... again

I have been reading Oliver Sacks' A Leg To Stand On, his autobiographical novel of breaking his leg fairly catastrophically, including a complete denervation - that is, he lost his ability to perceive his leg as part of himself. It's a fascinating reflection on being a patient, on illness and convalescence.

Sacks is quite an amazing author. I'm looking forward to reading his new book Musicology!
