My Lobotomy: A Memoir - used book

2005, ISBN: 0307381277

ID: 4686842

From Publishers Weekly At age 12, in 1960, Dully received a transorbital or ice pick lobotomy from Dr. Walter Freeman, who invented the procedure, making Dully an unfortunate statistic in medical history-the youngest of the more than 10,000 patients who Freeman lobotomized to cure their supposed mental illness. In this brutally honest memoir, Dully, writing with Fleming (The Ivory Coast), describes how he set out 40 years later to find out why he was lobotomized, since he did not exhibit any signs of mental instability at the time, and why, postoperation, he was bounced between various institutions and then slowly fell into a life of drug and alcohol abuse. His journey-first described in a National Public Radio feature in 2005-finds Dully discovering how deeply he was the victim of an unstable stepmother who systematically abused him and who then convinced his distant father that a lobotomy was the answer to Dully's acting out against her psychic torture. Review "The lobotomy, although terrible, was not the greatest injury done to him. His greatest misfortune, as his own testimony makes clear, was being raised by parents who could not give him love. The lobotomy, he writes, made him feel like a Frankenstein monster. But that's not quite right. By the age of 12 he already felt that way. It's this that makes My Lobotomy one of the saddest stories you'll ever read." -William Grimes, The New York Times "Dully's tale is a heartbreakingly sad story of a life seriously, tragically i biographies,diseases and physical ailments,dysfunctional relationships,family relationships,health fitness and dieting,history,medical,medical books,memoirs,mental illness Family Relationships, Broadway Books

My Lobotomy: A Memoir - new book

2008, ISBN: 9780307381279

ID: 175973763

At twelve, Howard Dully was guilty of the same crimes as other boys his age: he was moody, messy, rambunctious, and perpetually at odds with his parents. Yet somehow, this normal boy became one of the youngest people on whom Dr. Walter Freeman performed his barbaric transorbital--or ice pick--lobotomy. Abandoned by his family within a year of the surgery, Howard spent his teen years in mental institutions, his twenties in jail, and his thirties in a bottle. It wasn´t until his forties that Howard began to pull his life together. But he still struggled with one question: Why? Through his research, Howard met other lobotomy patients and their families, talked with one of Freeman´s sons about his father´s controversial life´s work, and confronted his own father about his complicity. And, in the doctor´s files, he finally came face to face with the truth.--From publisher description.The author describes his victimization at the hands of Dr. Walter Freeman, who performed a lobotomy on him at the age of twelve; his experiences with institutions, jail, and homelessness; and his determination to find out why he was forced to undergo a lobotomy.
