This memoir is unforgettable, challenging everything we assume we take for granted about identity and sense of self. After suffering a trauma and waking on a train platform in India David MacLean has total amnesia. His amnesia is determined to be the result of a reaction to an antimalarial medication. His recovery is in fits and starts. He has memory of song lyrics, but not of family or friends. He has no memory of his girl friend and the attempts at reconstructing his identity are by turns harrowing and hilarious.
