Memoir Of Amnesia: 'My Brain Was So Starved For Narrative'

Feb 27, 2014

Ross Reynolds talks to Pen/American Award winning writer David Stuart MacLean about his new book “The Answer to the Riddle Is Me: A Memoir of Amnesia."

The book is based on his This American Life story.

Imagine finding yourself on a train platform in India. A train is just pulling away,  you have no ticket, and you have no idea who you are. You’d probably pinch yourself and hope you'd woke up. But when MacLean found himself in this situation in 2002, it wasn't a dream.
