The Noon Bell

A quiet study of sound, smell and daydreaming, The Noon Bell explores the delights and fears of remembering and forgetting. Written in twelve aphoristic chapters and told during the twelve resonant chimes of a village church bell, an Alpine region of Switzerland sets the scene in this poetic and philosophical short story about the search for a recurrent dream.
