David Bowie, Again.

From the Fix comes a review of 2012 and 'David Bowie':

“David Bowie” by Ben Peek is a unique story told through a conversation between two friends as they debate on what to do with themselves in the few years before the end of the world in 2012. They’ve quit their mundane jobs. Why bother? So, what to do? Create art? Or music? Or some other lasting thing of beauty? But why bother if there will be no one to appreciate it? Perhaps do nothing? Wile away the last years on mindless pleasure? Or maybe even check out early and beat the rush before the madness sets in on the last living souls? And so they debate what to do. A truly disturbing, if minimalist, tale.


It seems the reviewer has misread the story (the world is not ending in it), but still, they liked it, and that's what counts, I suppose.
