About the Edition

A remarkable story of determination and survival with the power of One Flew Over the Cuckoo"s Nest.Howard Dully was 12 years old when he was given a lobotomy. He was 56 years old when he found out why. The four decades in between tell a story of profound love and compassion. In 1960 Howard"s father and stepmother delivered him into the hands of the man who had invented the "ice pick" lobotomy. Expelled from the mainstream medical community, his once-popular procedure now a grisly medical relic, Dr Walter Freeman was eager to turn this temperamental 12-year-old into a submissive boy – especially after hearing the terrible lies his stepmother told about him. Howard, told he was going into the hospital for tests, was instead given electro-shock treatments and a transorbital lobotomy. It took him 40 years to recover. Howard Dully"s escape from that dark place is a voyage of enormous hope and universal appeal.
