SCI-FI: The Coma by Alex Garland

Mozart's Bakery- We've met here before, but it has been a while. This place is tucked away, so maybe give yourself a few extra minutes to find it. It's right near 35/Royal (hopefully a good compromise for those located north and those located centrally). If you exit Royal, Emerald is the first road on the west side of 35. However, last time I was there- there was not a street sign... So keep an eye out! Consult your maps/gps before going- and you should be ok. Mozart's offers a variety of coffee drinks, bubble tea, and a huge selection of pastries/cakes/sweets.

When Carl awakens from a coma after being attacked on a subway train, life around him feels unfamiliar, even strange. He arrives at his best friend's house without remembering how he got there; he seems to be having an affair with his secretary, which is pleasant but surprising. He starts to notice distortions in his experience, strange leaps in his perception of time. Is he truly reacting with the outside world, he wonders, or might he be terribly mistaken? So begins a dark psychological drama that raises questions about the boundaries of consciousness.
