‘When Oliver Sacks died … the world lost a beloved author and neurologist. I lost my partner,’ Bill Hayes says. When they first became correspondents in 2007, Bill was grieving the death of a partner, and Sacks had lived in self-imposed celibacy for more than three decades. They fell in love. In this very special event, Bill reflects on the life and work of Dr Sacks, including his now classic suite of final New York Times essays on facing illness and death.
