The music of Shostakovich gave Stephen Johnson a reason for living after struggling with bipolar disorder; Alison Leslie Gold wrote her way out of alcoholism under the benign influence of Miep Gies, the woman who sheltered the Anne Frank family; and the madcap ideas of William Burroughs inspired the eminent neurologist A. J. Lees to find new treatments for Parkinson’s Disease.

How Shostakovich Changed My Mind by Stephen Johnson

Found and Lost: Mittens, Miep, and Shovelfuls of Dirt by Alison Leslie Gold
