"The first biography of the renowned American author David Foster Wallace. Wallace was one of the most innovative and influential authors of the last twenty-five years.

The family that couldn't sleep : [a medical mystery] by D. T Max( Recording )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Family That Couldn't Sleep, essayist and journalist D.T. Max tells the spellbinding story of the prion's hidden past and deadly future. Through exclusive interviews and original archival research, Max explains this story's connection to human greed and ambition-from the Prussian chemist Justus von Liebig, who made cattle meatier by feeding them the flesh of other cows, to New Guinean natives whose custom of eating the brains of the dead nearly wiped them out. The biologists who have investigated these afflictions are just as extraordinary-for example, Daniel Carleton Gajdusek, a self-described "pedagogic pedophiliac pediatrician" who cracked kuru and won the Nobel Prize, and another Nobel winner, Stanley Prusiner, a driven, feared self-promoter who identified the key protein that revolutionized prion study. With remarkable precision, grace, and sympathy, Max-who himself suffers from an inherited neurological illness-explores maladies that have tormented humanity for centuries and gives reason to hope that someday cures will be found. And he eloquently demonstrates that in our relationship to nature and these ailments, we have been our own worst enemy

Una extraordinaria investigación; un libro tan compasivo como doloroso de leer. , Dave Eggers. Un modelo ejemplar de biografía literaria. James Atlas, autor de Bellow: A Biography.
