Lees and Ira Silverberg. Howl! Happening in collaboration with New York Review Books and Notting Hill Editions is pleased to present an evening celebrating the U.S. publication of Mentored by a Madman: The William Burroughs Experiment by internationally distinguished neurologist A.J. author’s groundbreaking research on Parkinson’s disease .

    In my own book, Mentored by a Madman: The William Burroughs Experiment, I talk much more about Richard Spruce, who was a friend and colleague of Bates. Both men spent more than a decade in the Amazon basin collecting flora and fauna. These neuro books are of variable quality, ranging from Andrew Lees’s brilliant Mentored by a Madman to the solipsistic and unintentionally hilarious Mirror Touch by the American neurologist Author: Seamus O'mahony.

      Directed by Ben Crowe. With Andrew John Lees, Michael Zandi, William Gowers. The William Burroughs Experiment: A conversation with and Mike Zandi. Hanging out with the molecules. A guide to neurology, discovery, and the Parkinson's Disease. Mentored by a Madman is a powerful protest against bureaucracy and a call for imagination in medical research.
