I Want That Book: Oliver Sacks’ On The Move



I’ve read most of what neurologist Oliver Sacks has written (Awakenings, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Hallucinations) but nothing so deeply affecting as The New York Times column he wrote in February about his terminal cancer diagnosis. His new autobiography, On The Move (Knopf, $28, April 28) picks up where his boyhood memoir, Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood left off. Sacks—a gifted writer of honest, lucid prose—will be sorely missed.
