Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966287819, Hardcover)

A book of memoirs by the world's oldest full-time immunologist, Souvenirs starts in Transylvanian Hungary and goes around the world as it evokes a century of enthusiasts, famous and unknown, who have found inspiration and sustenance in science and the arts. The book's rich itinerary includes such places as Paris, Rome, Venice, Budapest, London, Sao Paulo, Bessarabia, Syria, Kyoto, Fiji, Borneo, Beijing, and New York. Souvenirs brims with stories about Nobel laureates, diplomats, and artists, including Bela Bartok, who frequented Dr. Ovary's childhood home, Salvador Dali, Birgit Nilsson, and Dr. Ovary's godmother, the Baroness Karola Bornemissza, the first woman in the world to fly in a plane. Dr. Ovary looks lovingly to the past yet continues to find inspiration in the world of chance and possibility. Breathing through each decade of the century, Souvenirs is one man's farewell to this century and invitation to the next.
