Praise
"Memoirs of illness and injury too frequently end up either as proud testimonies of endurance or self-indulgent tomes, but Andrew Levy's beautiful memoir is welcome relief....Levy is...an accomplished writer, who turns his exacting gaze inward, inviting us to accompany him on a harrowing descent as he changes from a man who has suffered from occasional headaches into the victim of an unremitting, four-month-long, life-altering migraine."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this marvelous medical memoir, Andrew Levy details his battle with debilitating migraines, documenting his exhaustive attempts to determine their cause and his eventual acceptance of the pain and delirium, a surrender which turned out to be a most effective form of treatment. Levy always provides descriptive accounts of migraines from other notable sufferers, including Charles Darwin, Virginia Woolf, Sigmund Freud, and the King himself, Elvis Presley.
