“Whenever the prelude to a chain of events was clear, time would trundle on like normal. Whenever the past was in order, with conflicts and injustices being discovered and revealed, and wounds were being healed, a certain degree of reconciliation was possible; time could move on in a nice linear fashion. But whenever the past was in someway false, deliberately falsified, then history would start to rot, a fly would appear in time’s ointment, a spanner in its works, and time itself would start to act strangely. That was one theory anyway.” #EuropaBlues #ArneDahl #fivegoldstars - bit weirded out to have read this book in the first weeks of May (time of action though clearly not this year!!) instead of what would be more normal for me to gulp it down immediately when I got it (29 Oct 2017).
