På bloggen är det dags för En smakebit på søndag i regi av bloggen Flukten fra virkeligheten. Boken jag håller på att läsa är The Good Father av Noah Hawley som jag köpte i London i våras. På baksidan står det så här: Dr Paul Allen is a happy, respected family man. All that’s about to change. When he opens the door to the news… That his son has killed the next President of the USA. Did he do it? Why would he? And what now?
Smakbiten kommer från sid 27
I tried to see my son in that way – a deranged assassin with a maniacal scheme – but my brain literally refused to make the connection. Danny was a normal kid from a normal home. Okay. The product of divorce, but isn’t that considered normal these days? Fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce, and you don’t see all those kids growing up to be lone gunmen. No. This was a mistake. And I would put it right.
‘Listen,’ I said. ‘I demand that my son get medical attention immediately.’
‘With all due respect, sir.’ said Green, ‘fuck you and your son.’
Those were the last words we spoke until we arrived at the secure facility.
