Karinthy’s work is one of the best illness memoirs of all time, and it is also a unique work from the point of view of world literature. Heartbreaking investigation after the “big diagnosis”. From health to illness – this is every person’s nightmare and an almost inevitable big change in the second half of their life. The work still has significant literary and human value, as Karinthy turns to the secrets of the world with elementary curiosity. He researches himself, the characteristics of medicine, science, obsessively, yet imbued with some self-irony. He believes in the power of science, its redemptive power that transcends human lives. Karinthy’s rationalist style, perpetual self-reflection and sensitivity to parody make his works deeply relatable and entertaining. Humor is an essential part of life for Karinthy, he analyzes everything from this perspective.
