NPR : 'My Lobotomy': Howard Dully's Journey

‘My Lobotomy’: Howard Dully’s Journey

Another fantastic link from Jonty, about the psychiatrist Walter Freeman and his rapid ice-pick lobotomies. Curiously, I think my grand-uncle was given a lobotomy many years ago, but it’s one of those topics that my family refuses to talk about. (And considering most lobotomies require familial consent, who can blame them?)

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
