Summary "Imagine if every time you saw someone called Derek, you got a strong taste of earwax in your mouth. That's what happens to James Wannerton. Derek is one of his regulars. Another regular's name gives him the taste of wet nappies. John, on the other hand, sees words as colours, even though he is blind. They both have something called synesthesia, a bizarre condition in which their senses become intermingled. Until recently, many scientists thought it was so strange that it could not exist but now one of the most respected brain experts in the world has declared that not only does synesthesia exist, but it may even explain the origin of language and such vivid metaphors as 'bitter cold', 'sharp cheese' or 'loud pink'.
