This book will show you that it's damned hard to kill the human spirit. Howard Dully's unstinting look at the unconscionable lobotomy performed on him at age 12 is really more about growing up in a home without real love, with a father and stepmother with serious issues of their own. It is an eye-opening look at a tragic period in medical history and its misuse by both the medical establishment and caregivers.

Listening to the guy made him sound like he was really a lot more functioning than I imagined. As this was such a NON-exact "science" that I gather there are a HUGE number of outcomes post-op.
At twelve, Howard Dully was guilty of the same crimes as other boys his age: he was moody, messy, rambunctious, and perpetually at odds with his parents. Yet somehow, this normal boy became one of the youngest people on whom Dr. Walter Freeman performed his barbaric transorbital or ice pick lobotomy. Abandoned by his family within a year of the surgery, Howard spent his teen years in mental institutions, his twenties in jail, and his thirties in a bottle. It wasn't until his forties that Howard began to pull his life together
By: Howard Dully, Charles Fleming. Narrated by: Johnny Heller. What does Johnny Heller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book? Portability. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
In this gut-wrenching memoir, Howard Dully recounts what life was like after he was needlessly lobotomized by an unlicensed physician at the age of twelve at the behest of his abusive stepmother. In 1960, he writes, I was given a transorbital, or ‘ice pick’ lobotomy. Dully had never been crazy, and his (not very) bad behavior sounds like the typical acting-up of a child in desperate need of affection. It’s a tale of epic horror, and while Dully’s courage in telling it inspires awe, readers are left to speculate about what drove supposedly responsible adults to such unconscionable acts.

Howard Dully, NPR. I highly recommend My Lobotomy: a Memoir, a mentally painful book which made me question how Freeman was allowed to perform such an invasive, horrible, mind-altering procedure, the transorbital lobotomy, so long unchecked.
