I wrote The Neurology of Angels because in my various jobs in academic research, the government, and the biotechnology industry, I have met a lot of good people who are trying to do the right thing. So, the issues of the high costs of drugs and too-long development are a much more complex story than corruption, ineptitude, or callousness, particularly with respect to rare diseases, and I thought it was a story that needed to be told. Dianne Salerni, author of High Spirits, called The Neurology of Angels “Powerful, Informative, Heart-tugging…a novel brave enough to challenge our misconceptions.” And that is all I was aiming to do.
