This short memoir is from June 2011 to around a year later. In June 2011, Wiesel went to his doctor complaining of pain and was told it was his heart. He had had numerous health problems, but never anything to do with his heart, and was surprised. He was even more surprised when the urgency of needing more tests and surgery was impressed upon him. This memoir describes his reaction, the surgery and his impressions of that, his feelings during his recovery and his reflections on the experience.
