I knew a man... Jean Améry


I knew  a man who took a good number of sleeping pills because of a marital squabble, was "rescued" by pure chance, lay in a coma for twenty-four hours, and still lives today. He was dragged to a neurologist who was a friend of his and who wisely said, "Don't you realize that things like domestic quarrels, tears, and reconciliations belong to vaudeville?" A trifle had escaped the doctor: what is to be called vaudeville and what is to be called tragedy is decided by the author. 

-Jean Améry
