LETTERS by Oliver Sacks

Happy birthday, Oliver

Today would have been Oliver Sacks’s 91st birthday, and we want to celebrate by sharing the cover of his forthcoming book with you. This charming, never-before-seen photo of Oliver was taken in 1997 by his good friend Rosalie Winard, a few blocks from his home on Horatio Street in Greenwich Village.
Oliver Sacks’s LETTERS, full of his deepest thoughts on music, art, and science, friendship and resilience, and what it takes to lead a meaningful life, will be available on November 5.
Kate Edgar, director of the Oliver Sacks Foundation, said “Having spent the better part of forty years working side by side with Oliver Sacks as his researcher and editor on sixteen books, I thought I knew a lot about his life—but delving into his correspondence for this volume has been for me a fascinating journey, revealing many new aspects of a truly remarkable man.”
