Connectomics is a book of poems that will expand your mind. It does exactly what the title says: it makes connections – between languages, between cultures and between human beings and our brains, that make it possible for us to be, to know, and to make connections.
As Professor Raymond Tallis says in his foreword, “The wonderfully articulated, poised, often epigrammatic poems, picking up glints from the cutting edge of neuroscience, are so beguiling. The author asks us to look at our brains (and implicitly ourselves and our lives, our forgotten and remembered tasks through the lens of bioscience refracted in turn through the mind of the poet. They are playful, witty, wry and often poignant.”
