Mein Lieblingszitat stammt aus „K-PAX“ von Gene Brewer. Ein wirklich sehr sehr tolles Buch, das ich leider viel zu wenig anpreise.
Every mistake you make, you will live through again, & again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have.
Self-assured, wisecracking prot, who seems to possess arcane knowledge of subjects ranging from astronomy to paleontology, announces that he will return to K-PAX on August 17, just two months away. Before then, though, he enlists fellow patients in his fantasy; some of them, touched by his humanity, show marked improvement. Moreover, when Brewer invites prot home for a July Fourth barbecue, the man’s mere presence seems to trigger dramatic changes in the psychiatrist’s family. Brewer’s daughter confesses that she’s a lesbian, while his son, a pilot, divulges his deep-seated fear of flying, and switches careers. Aided by Giselle, a sleuthing reporter whose mawkish crush on prot strikes one of the few false notes here, Brewer finally brings out the repressed personality of a man scarred by trauma.
Und wer das Buch nicht lesen will, hier der Trailer zum Film:
