Literature fiction

When he was 41 years old, Jason Padgett had no reason to think he was special. He worked at his father’s furniture shop, to anyone’s eyes, he was the everyman. One night, he was brutally mugged and injured on the head. That very night, his stepfather died of cancer and in two weeks, his only brother went missing. These injuries forced Jason into a cocoon, living as a hermit for four years. He suffered from OCD and agoraphobia, and in that time, he began to show interest in mathematics and physics journals. He could see intricate shapes in his head, strangely detailed. He could draw these shapes effortlessly by hand, and soon, he found his way to college. There, his drawings were recognized as fractals, and his unique case took the world of neuroscience by storm. A story of an everyman whose fate changed forever, this is a story of man who took turmoil and shaped his life once and for all.
