In the Country of Last Things

These are the last things, she wrote. One by one they disappear and never come back. I can tell you of the ones I have seen, of the ones that are no more, but I doubt there will be time. It is all happening too fast now … These are the last things. A house is there one day, and the next day it is gone. A street you walked down yesterday is no longer there today.

(Paul Auster: In the Country of Last Things)
