Description

What if you remembered things that never happened? Or you forgot everything every few seconds? Or one side of your body stopped working? In Tell Me the Planets Ben Platts-Mills explores the fractured lives of survivors of brain injury, providing an extraordinary glimpse into their daily struggles to lead normal lives. With empathy and insight, he describes their efforts to understand what has happened to them, avoid homelessness, help others worse off than themselves and make risky, almost impossible medical decisions about their futures. Essential and inspiring, Tell Me the Planets will take you on a journey to the frontiers of science and the limits of human resilience. ‘An absorbing and moving account of what it is like to live with brain injury’ Penelope Lively ‘Extraordinary’ Nature ‘Heart-breaking and uplifting . . . a vivid and unforgettable portrait of modern Britain by an extraordinarily-gifted story-teller’ Robert Newman, author of Neuropolis
