    Description
    John Hale was one of the world's foremost Renaissance historians. Soon after delivering the second draft of the text of his masterpiece, 'The Civilization Of Europe In The Renaissance', Hale had a stroke that deprived him of the power of speech.

    His wife Sheila set out to find out what had happened and how John might be brought back to normal as far as possible. Her book gives a moving account of what it is like when a partner suffers a stroke and a sympathetic lay person's assessment of what is known about aphasia. But it is also an exploration of what aphasia can tell us about the nature of language, and how we construct our lives through it.
