«Everything seems different now. The room I am in looks no more familiar to me than it did this morning when I woke up and stumbled into it, trying to find the kitchen, desperate for a drink of water, desperate to piece together what happened last night.

The ticking of the clock at my shoulder is no longer just marking time. It speaks to me.»

S.J. Watson
