9780679752462: The Law of White Spaces

A mesmerizing and frightening work of fiction like no other, The Law of White Spaces comprises five compelling case studies unified by their obsession with what Oliver Sacks has called "the quintessential human condition of sickness." Gentle in their telling, at times quietly erotic,always savagely honest, these stories-about loss and desire, family and love-point to mysteries beyond the certainties of science and language.

From the Back Cover:

"An intensely touching book about the spirits of illness that inhabit people, waiting for their moment to mystify and challenge the logic of love and time. Pressburger conveys this sad, exotic idea with economy and rueful humour." - The Guardian

Despite months of memory training, he now finds himself at the graveside of his brother, unable to remember the prayer for the dead. Vera is a mute sixteen-year-old whose growth and development are so stunted that she resembles a six-year-old.
