From the publisher

A fascinating account by a leading neurologist revealing his self-experimentation to find treatments for Parkinson’s Disease.

In this extraordinary memoir, neuroscientist Andrew Lees explains how William Burroughs, author of Naked Lunch and troubled drug addict, played an unlikely part in his medical career.

‘It is hard to believe that this extraordinary memoir is not fiction but every word of it turns out to be rooted in hospital life and literary experience.’ – Robert McCrum, The Observer
