From Pulitzer-Prize-finalist Amy Ellis Nutt, comes the moving and inspiring story of Jon Sarkin. Sarkin's personality dramatically changed after he underwent experimental brain surgery and suffered a massive stroke. Remarkably, he could still remember his old self. Yet, once an ordinary family man, he suddenly found himself compelled to make art, always feverishly creating and only existing in the present. He has since gone on to become an acclaimed artist. Sarkin's story is beautifully interspersed with fascinating nuggets of history about man's struggle to understand the brain and the fragile nature of identity.
