The Liberty Campaign

The aging advertising executive Gene Trowbridge speaks: “There is a long period that precedes death, in which you are already not entirely of the world. Nothing makes sense to you anymore because it does not try or even think to relate itself to you in any way. It is as if the earth, without warning, begins turning faster, so that only the strongest can stay with it; already, already you can feel, and see, yourself being thrown clear of it.”
