Currently reading: "The Woman with a Worm in Her Head and Other True Stories of Infectious Disease" by Pamela Nagami

This is my current non-fiction book (other than the Big Book o’ Invertebrates, which is at home). It was published in the U.S. in as “Maneater” but the text is the same. Dr. Nagami is a doctor at the University of California. She has dealt with all manner of mysterious and troublesome diseases from parasitic infections to Strep A and Valley Fever. She has a chapter on the first cases of AIDS and the subsequent AIDS crisis.
