Music Of The Spheres
From the novel:
"When death looks you in the eye he challenges you to look back. He dares you to fall back on the normal excuses to try and ignore him. Just try telling him about reincarnation, rebirth, heaven, the afterlife, alternate universes, universal consciousness, religion, infinity, eternity, insanity. He forces me into the present, into the boredom of logical life, to focus on every detail. How I place the key into the ignition, start the car, turn the wheel to pass the Bistro, look at it, pretending it is the same as it was when I passed it a couple of hours age. I perform: I steer, I dim my lights for an oncoming car, I’m nice to someone I will never know."
