Oliver Sacks, in conversation with Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison

In Hallucinations (Vintage, $15.95), Oliver Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations tell us about the organization and structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture's folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination—a vital part of the human condition—is present in us all.
