    A Journey Round My Skull

    The author was 48 when he was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. His memoir follows him through the stages of symptom, diagnosis, and surgery. “Karinthy’s book is, to my mind, a masterpiece… . A Journey Around My Skull, the first autobiographical description of a journey inside the brain, remains one of the very best.”—Oliver Sacks, from the Introduction.
