Product description

Review

"A most remarkable book. "A Brain Wider Than the Sky" is learned, witty, allusive, and poetic -- and migraine becomes, for Levy, a window into the whole landscape of body and mind, health and disease, and the sheer complexity of being alive." -- Oliver Sacks, author of "Migraine" and "Musicophilia"

"This is a wonderful hybrid of a book about that most metaphysical of pains, the migraine headache. Part memoir, part historical inquiry, part philosophical meditation, "A Brain Wider Than the Sky" takes its reader on a physical and psychological journey and shows us that beauty and tranquility can be found in the least likely of places." -- Ann Packer, author of "Songs With out Words" and "The Dive from Clausen's Pier"
