Item description for Despertares (Coleccion Argumentos) by Oliver W. Sacks...

Este libro relata la extraordinaria historia de un grupo de veinte pacientes ingresados en el hospital Monte carmelo de Nuevas York, supervivientes de la gran epidemia de encefalitis letargica que alcanzo dimensiones planetarias en los anos veinte del siglo pasado, y del asombroso y subito despertar que experimentaron, cuarenta anos despues, gracias al Dr. Oliver Sacks, que les administro L-Dopa, un medicamento de reciente aparicion por aquel momento. Las anecdotas que cuenta de esa serie d epacientes, cada uno de ellos con una notable personalidad, son siempre conmovedoras y dan testimonio del valor con el que se enfrentaron a la enfermedad y a veces tienen connotaciones tragicas.
