In January 2000, Jane Lapotaire was just about to begin a lecture at the Ecole Internationale in Paris when she collapsed.

She was rushed to hospital with a cerebral aneurysm and after emergency surgery and two subsequent operations on her brain she spent three and a half weeks largely unconscious in intensive care.

In the new Book Of The Week, she tells the extraordinary story of how she has had to come to terms with the irretrievable changes her illness has made to her life and as how she has had to learn to understand a stranger: her new self.
