Teaser Tuesdays

This is for the Teaser Tuesday blog meme.

From The Golden Age by Michal Ajvaz, translated by Andrew Oakland, page 267:

Dru sleeps during the day, and when he wakes in the afternoon he waits with impatience for night to fall. He sits in his room in a low chair, watching through the window the outlines of the bald branches of the garden; he contemplates the white walls of the room and their pictures of a glorious distant planet, which appears to be living through the later years of a golden age (there are obvious indications of imminent decline).
