Additional Information

In the final moments of Arthur Koestler’s book Darkness at Noon, the protagonist, Rubashov accepts his fate. A political prisoner for whom the tables have changed comes to the realisation that like many he had sent to the firing squad before him, he too will face the ice cold kiss of the bullet. This incredibly challenging book catapulted my teenage mind into a world I had never considered previously. Its affect was profound as it gave me a slither of insight into life, actions, consequences and mortality. It made me question the right of one human to take the life of another, be it by law or by crime. The knowledge of one’s own death – the setting of a date, time and place has lingered with me all these years.

We see Arthur Koester depicted as Rubashov as he plummets to the floor, eyes wide, shocked by the reality of his passing. We see ourselves reflected in his surroundings and are witness to his last moments.
