An intriguing psychological short story by the author of ‘(Un)happy Christmas’, ‘The machine’, ‘Meltdown’ and ‘The dream’.
What does it mean to be dying, to be in the last minutes and seconds of death? Nobody has ever attempted to write about these last moments of life, and yet that is precisely what terminally ill author Gerald Wexford is attempting: to write down how he, how his body feels in his very last moments of life. Adopting a rather scientific and rational approach, Gerald tries to describe his last moments in as dispassionate a way as possible, which leaves no room for religion or spirituality. Inevitably, this story is a tough read about a topic most humans, naturally, tend to avoid and don’t want to think about. But, want it or not, death is what awaits us all, whether rich or poor, famous or not, happy or unhappy, and we should no longer shy away from confronting what we will all eventually face. So, read Gerald’s story with caution and a healthy pinch of cynicism, but read it nonetheless in the knowledge that it may also be an account of your own eventual last moments.
