Summary

Fra il 1917 e il 1927, una grave epidemia di encefalite letargica (malattia del sonno) colpì quasi cinque milioni di persone. Una minuscola frazione dei malati sopravvisse, in una sorta di perpetuo torpore, fino al 1969, quando un nuovo farmaco, la L-dopa, permise di "risvegliarli". 

Oliver Sacks, fra il 1969 e il 1972, somministrò questo farmaco a più di duecento malati al Mount Carmel Hospital di New York. Risvegli racconta le storie di venti di loro.
