This novel is made up of the tales of many different lives.
Life is short. We all make our own paths through its vagaries. No two lives are the same. This is a window into different interlocking worlds. These lives have their loves, tragedies, importance, mundanities and attitudes. We only glimpse the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that is their lives and through those fragments the picture it reveals.
In one sense this is a novel about death and chance. But it is really about life and how we try to make sense of it; to make sense of missed opportunities, frustrations and obsessions. It is about a series of very different lives and perspectives glimpsed through a window at a particularly poignant time; the tapestry of different lives that, for one moment, interconnect and yet remain completely separate.
The Liner Notes:
Looking out through that window, standing beside death, peering at the world outside, it struck me that we were all stranded within the parameters of our own narrow lives – the fashions and attitudes of our youth and old age. We were victims of our times and ourselves. There was no such thing as individuality and freedom. It was an illusion. All life ran its course and ended in scenes like this. We were all trapped within the limitations of our days.
Outside that window was another world. There were all manner of things happening. It was a panoply of everything you could imagine – rich and eventful. Life went on. It was only in here that it had stopped.
In here everything had changed. All values and endeavours had been rendered meaningless.
I hope you enjoy it.
