The Day My Brain Exploded

A True Story


After a full-throttle brain bleed at the age oftwenty-five, Ashok Rajamani, a first-generation Indian American, had to bereborn, relearning the most basic of things, piecing together a past,reclaiming a life, and coping with the societal prejudice inflicted on thosewith traumatic injury. With humor, spirit, and insight, he describes thecatastrophic event (his brain exploded just before his brother’s wedding!), aswell as the long, difficult recovery period. In the process, he introducesreaders to his family—his principal support group, as well as a constant sourceof frustration and amazement. Irreverent, coruscating, at times shocking, butalways revelatory, this audio production of his critically acclaimed memoirtakes the listener into unfamiliar territory, much like the experience Alicehad when she fell down the rabbit hole. That Ashok lived to tell the story ismiraculous; that he tells it with such aplomb is simply remarkable.
