                      Brain Fever by Kimiko Hahn
"In Brain Fever, Kimiko Hahn moves through the rooms of the mind with an an oneriric weightlessness. She also touches concrete ground in the realm of neuroscience, and in the world outside the mind, where love, betrayal, regret, and debilitating loss reside this is a beautiful and troubling book, a marriage of what matters most: the mysteries buried at our very core and the world that cradles and cuts into us at every turn."
Tracy K. Smith
