“He read somewhere that it takes the average human being just seven minutes to turn off all the switches and uncouple from the day. Seven minutes for conscious and subconscious to revolve, like the trick wall in an amusement-park haunted house. Something a little eerie in that.”
A quote from page 69 for #summerof69 !
Tim and Laura West receive a bizarre voicemail on their answering machine. Although the sound is muffled, the raised voices, suspicious thuds, and tortured gurgles lead them to believe that what they‘re hearing is a brutal murder, unintentionally left as a voice message. As they try to decide what to do next, they are forced to consider a terrifying thought: What will happen when the killer realizes his mistake? #summerof69 #songsofsummer
There is no #LoveLost between the Beats and I, but I was very excited to- finally!- come across a woman's perspective on that movement. DiPrima's memoir, published in the #SummerOf69, didn't specifically surprise or move me, but I appreciated her voice in the mix. #SongsOfSummer #JazzyJune
