A finalist for The Guardian First Book Award, and hailed as "a tour-de-force intertwining of the clinical, the personal, the fictive, and the philosophical" (Kirkus Reviews), Into the Silent Land is a stunning look into how the human brain constructs a "self," or the essence of who we are as individuals. A neuropsychologist with twenty-five years' experience and a runner-up for the prestigious Wellcome Trust Science Prize, Paul Broks fuses his own case studies, personal vignettes, philosophical debate, and thought-provoking riffs and meditations into a series of narratives that not only delve into the inner lives of his patients, but into a deeper understanding of how we define who we are.
