Publisher's summary

Imagine a world in which words have colors and sounds have tastes. In this first audiobook by a synesthete about synesthesia, discover the neurological phenomenon, which helped inspire painter David Hockney's sets for the Metropolitan Opera and musician Pharrell Williams' musical compositions.

Physicist Richard Feynman experienced it while formulating the quantum theory that won him a Nobel Prize. Sometimes described as a blending of perceptions, synesthesia occurs when only one of the fives senses is aroused but two respond. Author Patricia Lynne Duffy, a synesthete herself, draws from her own struggles and breakthroughs to help us better understand the condition, while describing some of the major theories surrounding it. An illuminating examination of the world of synesthetes, Blue Cats and Chartreuse Kittens is a must-listen for science and health buffs, as well as for artists, writers, and creative thinkers - or anyone generally intrigued by the brain, the senses, and perception.
