The Darker the Night, the Brighter the Stars
A man’s wife dies. What next? The next day is next, and the next, and so on. He smothers his sorrow and gets on with the days. He’s a Stoic. Tranquillity is the goal, but his brain won’t rest. As a neuropsychologist he has spent a career trying to fathom the human brain but now, he comes to realize, his brain is struggling to make sense of him – probing, doubting, reconstructing. Combining neurological case stories and memoir, and with excursions into speculative fiction and mythology, this is an audaciously original, deeply personal meditation on grief, time and selfhood.
