It almost seems like a contradiction in terms to call a book that focuses on the human brain too cerebral Yet somehow for this reader the term fits The premise is uite enticing a Danish headmaster Frederik Halling is on vacation in Maorca with his wife Mia and their teenage son Niklas when it s discovered that he has a non malignant brain tumor and likely has had it for many years The tumor situated on his orbitofrontal cortex coordinates emotions modulates those all or nothing signals and provides a nuanced human expressionYet even after surgery all this is at the very beginning Frederik remains overly impulsive and indifferent Worse it uickly comes to light that he has embezzled from his local private school uite probably when the tumor was in its development stage Is he responsible for the crime Was he aware of what he was doing But even importantly who is the real Frederik Or as Mia muses Among all the thousands of chaotic little conflicts and oddities that make up everyday life in a family what s the first episode however minor that I can point to and say Frederik wasn t himself These are important uestions and the author makes the wise choice in muddying the waters with the character of Mia Not brain damaged Mia is hindered with a distinct lack of empathy In fact she s selfish and an unreliable narrator and observer She too is a changed person so other uestions arise What about those who change as a result of being with someone who has been transformed by a brain tumor Physiologically and emotionally what lies at the core of our personhood This fascinating plot coupled with the obvious intelligence and research of Mr Jungersen should make You Disappear a runaway winner Yet there are two things that kept me from totally connecting The first I suspect is an overly literal translation There s a certain distance in the narration that robbed me of a emotional involvementThe second is that Chrisitan Jungersen seems to straddle back and forth between enlightening and educating The research he put in is too publicly on display keeping me from immersing into that alternate world of a fictional work For instance Since then I ve learned that a tumor can make it harder or someone to multitask that it can lead to monomania Medically it s certainly possible that it took root at the beginning of our marriage transforming my marvelous charming husband into an unfaithful workaholic That it then stopped growing until he earned to compensate and for three good years became like himself again Granted Mia has steeped herself into research but from time to time I got the feeling I was being educated by the author in the best of books that educational element is seamlessI ve no doubt that this style will work for many other literary readers

Is there such a thing as free will It s a philosophical uestion that assumes heightened urgency with each new revelation in neuroscience Empathy the unconventional connections that comprise wit and a sense of humor behaviors and expressions that define our uniueness and even memories in short all the traits we apprehend as personality can be parsed into a flow of chemicals and electrical impulses stimulating various regions of the brain Author Jungersen selects as his subject orbitofrontal damage caused by a tumor in the brain of Frederik Halling the brilliant and committed headmaster of a small elite private school Interspersed throughout the story are explanatory texts on neuroscience These are the texts Mia Frederik s wife from whose viewpoint the story is told uses to educate herself about her husband s tumor and the effect it has on his neural functioning The tone of these texts is clinical Orbitofrontal damage results in the injured person losing the uniue personal way he modulates his emotionsIt is characteristic of frontal lobe syndrome that the person who suffers from it mistakenly believes he is healthy and completely unaffected No test or argument can convince him otherwise The absence of empathy for others and of a sense for when he is about to make a poor choice often leads to a radically altered way of life for a person with orbitofrontal damage even one whose injuries are so minor as to be undetectable by conventional psychological tests The tumor is discovered by chance when Frederik has an accidental fall while the family is vacationing in Majorca Mia recounts their history together The last three years of the marriage have been idyllic After years of dedication to the welfare of the school and its children Frederik had finally taken time off to spend with the family That decision coincided with a traumatic episode in their lives Mia discovered Frederik had been having an affair not for the first time and she threw Frederik out of the house Then their teen aged son Niklas discovers her passed out on the floor next to an empty bottle of vodka and she wakes up in the hospital after having her stomach pumped Frederik is there when she wakes up and resolves to be a better husband Since then their marriage has felt perfect It is a shock she can scarcely endure that this period of happiness might end so soon and so abruptlyThe trajectory of the story up to this point appears predictable Mia struggles with her fears of being a caretaker to an invalid for the rest of her life She is convinced that Frederik will never fully recover and is appalled by his symptoms of alternating rage and indifference to her and his own inability to admit that the malady has changed him Her feelings of loyalty and obligation are mixed with rage and guilt The needs of the caretaker in this situation are given scrupulous coverage by Jungersenview spoilerHowever that s when the story actually starts to get interesting Jungersen has been misleading the reader just as Mia has been misled Frederik s tumor probably began to affect his behavior at least three years ago when he became a attentive husband The radical change in his behavior was the conversion from distant workaholic to solicitous family man The real Frederik was the man she felt had abandoned her emotionally The she considers when she knew the real Frederik the troubled Mia becomes She remembers that six years ago Frederik gave her a cheese for their anniversary Could that be considered out of the ordinary But that was six whole years agoNow Jungersen throws in another shock Frederik had been embezzling money from the school and lost it making speculative investments The school is now bankrupt and Mia dedicates herself to uncovering evidence that the tumor is to blame in a desperate effort to prevent Frederik from going to jail Mia turns to Bernard a disabilities attorney she met in her support group Bernard is everything Mia could ever want in a man He s loving devoted empathetic and sensitive Despite the fact that he is married to a severely handicapped woman who was injured in a car accident Mia falls in love with Bernard and they have a clandestine affair But now here is the final shock Jungersen throws our way All of this time we have been viewing things through Mia s eyes Mia the ultimate unreliable observer Though she denies trying to commit suicide that night her stomach had to be pumped the reader is filled with doubts We see her continue to rage at Frederik even when it s obvious that he has recovered Proof of that recovery is supported by his strengthened relationship with their son Niklas Finally we learn that Bernard was also in the accident that injured his wife He suffered a massive brain injury that totally altered his personality Is it the brain damaged Bernard not the real Bernard that Mia is in love withMia is the one who displays the lack of empathy and unrestrained impulsiveness of neural impairment The cumulation of her parents troubled marriage her father s premature death the years of being emotionally abandoned by her husband his affairs and the thought that the angry resentful verbally abusive man she is living with is the real Frederik freed from the inhibitions of his frontal lobe in other words life itself could have delivered her to this point There are subtle hints of a change early in the story Mia s best friend Helen senses an overly animated affect in Mia You should go home now It s great that you came But you re not yourself today Helen cautions Mia hide
