Published today: “My Lobotomy”


In The rise and fall of the prefrontal lobotomy, I discussed the heart-breaking case of Howard Dully, whose stepmother had him lobotomized when he was12 years old.

Dully relates his story in My Lobotomy, an autobiographical book which is co-authored by novelist and journalist Charles Fleming. My Lobotomy is published today in the U.S., and in a few month’s time in the U.K.

Both Dully and Fleming have contacted me recently, and Fleming has kindly agreed to send me a copy of the book, so  I’ll write more about it when I’ve read it. Meanwhile, you can read more about it on Dully’s blog.
