My Life as a Fish by Paul Allen | Paperback
Altered states of reality is often the stuff of fiction, but in 'My Life as a Fish' it's fact. Not only has Paul Allen travelled back from severe brain injury, he has recorded the journey for us in vivid detail. With wit and insight he lets us into the horrifically real world he has inhabited while unable to communicate in this world. Here, in a ruined city, humans are forced to breathe water.
With illustrations also by Paul Allen, this book is essential reading for the medical profession or for anyone who deals with brain injury patients. But by any standards 'My Life as a Fish' is an impressive achievement.
