On the Move: A Life
Will Self

Sacks, Oliver
Year Published:  2015  
Pages:  256pp  
Oliver Sacks, the eminent neurologist and writer, whose many books have done perhaps more than any other body of work to explain the mysteries of the brain to a general readership, is a strong supporter of the "narrativity" theory of the human subject. Suitably enough - given this is an autobiography - Sacks restates the notion here: "Each of us...constructs and lives a "narrative" and is defined by this narrative." Elsewhere he asserts: "I suspect that a feeling for stories, for narrative, is a universal human disposition, going with our powers of language, consciousness of self, and autobiographical memory."
