The Death and Life of Mrs Parker (2021) published by Ad Hoc Fiction

“A theory expounded by Heidegger is that time is a series of ‘nows’, each one always already the subject of a flash of experience, and all hurtling towards the finitude that defines experience.”

When Mrs Parker begins to feel most peculiar, an ambulance is called and the paramedics set to work, she wonders if that will be the end of her, there at The Oriental Dragon surrounded by strangers forking up their fried rice specials. As her life hangs in the balance, she considers her heart and relives some of the ‘nows’ of a life richly lived and almost always taken for granted.
