“Extraordinary on first reading, even more so on a second . . . the sort of book one wants to pick up again and again.” —Oliver Sacks

“Lively and erudite.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Gonzalez-Crussi writes essays that fuse science, literature, and personal history into highly civilized artifacts. Here are five such pieces...all of them informative, none of them predictable.” —The Washington Post

“A meditation on sensory experience by a Mexican–born pathologist who weaves personal experiences with history, science, philosophy and theology for a wide–ranging approach to our centuries–old but undissipated curiosity about the origins of pain and pleasure.... An erudite work.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
