“I’ll never forget that monday when I put the barrel of a gun to my head and fired until I was out of bullets, without stopping to think of what I was doing so I wouldn’t have a chance to change my mind. It was my resignation to a future which I already knew, a farewell to a secure job, an adieu to a brillant career in advertising, the microcosm where I had lived for the last twelve long years.
It was ten minutes after ten in the morning an my last words were, more or less ‘keep the corpse, I’m leaving.’ My body collapsed and I walked out the door.”
