"One of the most beautifully composed and moving works of our time." —The Washington Post

"[Sacks] opens to the reader doors of perception generally passed through only by those at the far borders of human experience." —The Boston Globe

"A masterpiece." —W. H. Auden --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
