The Woman Who Heard Color - Kelly Jones A link to the author's website: http://www.kellyjonesbooks.com/womanWhoHeardColor.php I am wondering how much of this story is true and how much is fiction. I chose not to read this book because there really is very little in the book about synesthesia!

Oh, look at this: http://www.mentalfloss.com/article/49442/vladimir-nabokov-talks-synesthesia. Not only Kandinsky, but also Nabokov had synestheisa. To a small extent it comes up in his memoir [b:Speak, Memory|30594|Speak, Memory|Vladimir Nabokov|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1346107008s/30594.jpg|2540547], which I must soon read.


On the topic of synesthesia these books also look interesting:
