A quick read. An interesting premise. A conflicted choice. Worth the time to read it.

A short parable, (allegory/fable?) that will get you thinking - what would you sacrifice for one more day of life? What would the ramifications be? This novella will hold appeal for fans of the fabulism of Haruki Murakami or the epiphany fic of Fredrik Backman.
