Don't Worry, I Have a Hole in My Head: A Memoir on Heartache and Head Injury is a humorous and thoughtful cross between Jill Bolte Taylor's My Stoke of Insight and Jenny Lawson's Furiously Happy. Shocking and funny, Hayes' memoir shares the true story of a sudden brain hemorrhage at the age of twenty-two - and the heartache and strength that it took to overcome it.
