the last book I ever read (Blue Angel: A Novel by Francine Prose, excerpt seven)

from Blue Angel: A Novel by Francine Prose:

Swenson feels his spirit separating from his body. Now he knows what he was dreading, but this is worse than whatever he’d feared. He feels as he does when he hurts himself, cuts his finger or stubs his toe, and in that first moment understands that the real pain is still to come, taking its own sweet time, waiting until the adrenaline goes and leaves him unprotected.
