    An old man lies dying. Confined to bed in his living room, he sees the walls around him begin to collapse, the windows come loose from their sashes, and the ceiling plaster fall off in great chunks, showering him with a lifetime of debris: newspaper clippings, old photographs, wool jackets, rusty tools, and the mangled brass works of antique clocks. Soon, the clouds from the sky above plummet down on top of him, followed by the stars, till the black night covers him like a shroud. He is hallucinating.

    Story

    This is a spectacular, beautiful book but Rummel (the narrator) reads too quickly! I had to go back and read it in print to get the full impact of Harding's gorgeous language. The only way I could listen to this audiobook was to play it at 1/2 speed. I highly recommend the novel but not the audio.
