Andrew's Brain

Andrew's Brain - E.L. Doctorow

A look at the inner working of the mind, in particular, our unreliable narrator Andrews. Andrew himself is a professor of cognitive science, and in an ongoing session with his therapist the reader is treated to a up close and personal look at a brain slowly

deconstructing.

 

Doctorow has long been one of my favorite authors, but this is not one of my favorite novels. He has done many I liked better. I just don't think I ever bonded enough with Andrew to really immerse myself in what he was going through. There were, however, moments of insight and lines of imaginative force that made for interesting reading.
