Martin O’Neill’s and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

When Martin O’Neill was creating the pieces for The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks, he had many pieces that weren’t selected or submitted. This lovely piece was to go with the following prose by Dr. Sacks: “he could smell their emotions – fear, contentment, sexuality – like a dog. He could recognize every street, every shop, by smell – he could find his way around New York, infallibly, by smell”

We love Martin’s amazingly narrative work and it’s nice to see it in context, like this.
