Inhalt
From its opening pages on his youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed, »On the Move« is infused with his restless energy. As he recounts his experiences as a young neurologist in the early 1960s, first in California, where he struggled with drug addiction and then in New York, where he discovered a long-forgotten illness in the back wards of a chronic hospital, we see how his engagement with patients comes to define his life. The same energy that drives his physical passions - weight lifting and swimming - also drives his cerebral passions. He writes about his gay love affairs, both romantic and intellectual; his guilt over leaving his family to come to America; his bond with his schizophrenic brother; and the writers and scientists - Thom Gunn, W. H. Auden, Francis Crick - who influenced him.
