FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgOne Hundred Names for Love: A Stroke, a Marriage, and the Language of Healing (Norton)
Poet, naturalist Diane Ackerman and her husband, novelist-scholar Paul West, lived a life of language — written and spoken language, articulation supreme. When Paul suffered a stroke, the couple had to learn to communicate in a new way. Diane Ackerman speaks lovingly about the very gradual evolution of a special aphasic language which would express their affection and which led Paul to write a new form of novel — an aphasic novel.
