An Open Mind. By Karl Ove Knausgaard.

A witness (Karl Ove Knausgaard) in an operating room where the patients are conscious.
Karl Ove Knausgaard is the author of the six-volume autobiographical novel ‘My Struggle.’

- “Do No Harm,” was written by the British neurosurgeon Henry Marsh.
His job is to slice into the brain, the most complex structure we know of in the universe, where everything that makes us human is contained, and the contrast between the extremely sophisticated and the extremely primitive — all of that work with knives, drills and saws — fascinated me deeply.


Marsh waved me over.
“See this? This little spot here. That’s the center for facial movement. We have to leave that in peace.”
- Were all the expressions the human face could make supposed to originate in this little spot? All the joy, all the grief, all the light and all the darkness?
