Fernyhough's latest book is Pieces of Light: How the New Science of Memory Illuminates the Stories We Tell About Our Pasts.
One of the author's top ten books on memory, as shared at the Guardian:
Austerlitz by WG SebaldRead about another book on the list.
The medium of memory is narrative, and the best writers on the topic can mimic its reconstructive processes. Sebald creates fictions that are like memories themselves: fragments of fact and imagination restlessly reorganised into shifting renditions of the past. Austerlitz's memories of his childhood in Sebald's final novel build to an anxious, enigmatic portrait of a mind trying to place itself in time.
Austerlitz is among Susheila Nasta's top ten cultural journeys and the top ten works of literature according to Peter Carey.
