Obituary: Oliver Sacks

British neurologist Oliver Sacks has died at the age of 82, it has been confirmed.

The acclaimed author, whose book Awakenings inspired an Oscar nominated film of the same name, reportedly died of cancer at his home in New York.

In February he wrote about his illness — and being face to face with dying.

His publicist Jacqui Graham paid tribute to Dr Sacks, saying he was unlike anybody I have ever met, while JK Rowling said he was inspirational — via redwolf.newsvine.com
