Blaise’s May Recommendation

The Answer to the Riddle is Me: A Memoir of Amnesia by David Stuart MacLean

answertoriddleBlaise says: In this non-fiction memoir MacLean details his story as he suffers and “recovers” from hallucinations and amnesia after taking a prescribed anti-malarial drug.  MacLean is wry, honest and introspective as he tells his story, which is by turns scary, amazing, and heartbreaking..  You can also hear MacLean tell his story on a segment of This American Life, from January 22, 2010.  Here is the link to listen: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/399/contents-unknown
