  • "Born with a below-normal IQ, Charlie Gordon is selected for experimental surgery to increase his intelligence--a procedure that has already worked on a lab mouse named Algernon. The surgery is a success, and Charlie's intelligence begins to surpass even that of the doctors and scientists who performed the surgery. But Algernon begins to deteriorate unexpectedly, and Charlie must confront what may soon happen to himself, as well.--From publisher description."@en

  • "Flowers For Algernon made its first appearance as a short story which was rapidly and widely anthologized, and translated internationally. It received further acclaim as a moderated television drama, and as a motional picture production. Now, full bodied and richly-peopled, Flowers For Algernon is the daring novel of a starling human experiment! After being mentally retarded for all of his thirty-two years, Charlie Gordon undergoes an operation designed to change his life."@en
  • "When brain surgery makes a mouse into a genius, dull-witted Charlie Gordon wonders if it might also work for him. With more than five million copies sold, Flowers for Algernon is the beloved, classic story of a mentally disabled man whose experimental quest for intelligence mirrors that of Algernon, an extraordinary lab mouse. In poignant diary entries, Charlie tells how a brain operation increases his IQ and changes his life. As the experimental procedure takes effect, Charlie's intelligence expands until it surpasses that of the doctors who engineered his metamorphosis. The experiment seems to be a scientific breakthrough of paramount importance, until Algernon begins his sudden, unexpected deterioration. Will the same happen to Charlie? An American classic that inspired the award-winning movie Charly."@en

  • "Charlie embarks on a compelling but dangerous journey from retardation to genius. Oscar-winning film Charly starring Cliff Robertson and Claire Bloom-a mentally challenged man receives an operation that turns him into a genius ... and introduces him to heartache. When we first meet Charlie he is about to embark on a compelling but dangerous journey from retardation to genius. He has only a vague understanding of what will happen, but he is aware that knowledge and the ability to write are of paramount importance. So he doesn't hesitate for a moment to cooperate in a radical experiment designed to increase his intelligence, the key - he hopes - to being valued as a human being and to being loved. Daniel Keyes's powerful and highly original story of a young man whose quest for intelligence and knowledge parallels that of Algernon (the mouse who is an earlier subject of a similar experiment) remains unique in imaginative literature. We follow Charlie Gordon's mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. We watch with excitement as he becomes the focus of attention by the scientific world, his intellectual capacities far surpassing those of the psychologists and neurosurgeons who engineered his metamorphosis. We also follow the progress of his romance with two women, one who knew him before the experiment as well as with another, who knows him only as the attractive, bright, and sympathetic man he has become. And, finally, we hope against hope that what happens suddenly, unexpectedly, to Algernon will not happen to Charlie."@en

  • ""Until he was thirty-two, gentle and likable Charlie Gordon had lived in a mental haze. He realized that knowledge and the ability to write were important, and though he was functionally literate, he wasn't as bright as most people around him. Even a white mouse named Algernon seemed to outpace Charlie. But Algernon's gifts weren't natural. They were the result of a unique operation. When Charlie undergoes a similar operation, readers are at once drawn into a radical experiment that has complex and profound implications."--Page 4 of cover."
