9781438212364: Frank

FRANK, the story about the first successful brain transplant, explores the age-old question of human identity . . . and demonstrates the impact a single individual can have on the lives of others. Howard Lavery was dying. The doctors couldn't help him; they couldn't even diagnose what had gone wrong. There was only one chance, an experimental brain transplant procedure developed by Dr. Sidney Bernstein. Against all odds, the experiment is a success . . . of sorts. Though alive, the essence of Howard Lavery is trapped within the useless shell of another man's body: a man called Frank. Able to hear and to think, and even to "speak" with the aid of a machine, Howard is nevertheless cut off from the outside world and all his loved ones. As Howard fights to overcome his isolation and make sense of the second chance he has been offered, his family and friends must wrestle with their own guilts and fears and, in the process, embarking on private journeys as profound as Howard's.
