ANOTHER ATROCITY

 

B-Movie. His eyes stared at Travis, their focus sustained only by a continuous effort. He traced the contours of breast and pelvis inside the yellow linen dress, then looked round as a young man walked towards them through the empty tables. Eighty feet above her the steel bowl had stopped revolving, and the echoes of the gunshots reverberated among the lattice-work. Beside him Quinton, the dapper pomaded Judas, was waving at the distant hedges where the three limousines were waiting. 'Talbot's belief -- and this is confirmed by the logic of the scenario -- is that automobile crashes play very different roles from the ones we assign them. Already members of the public were leaving.

Should he help Vaughan to escape? He stared up at the sculpture on the roof. As Catherine Austin walked around the converted gymnasium these bizarre images, with their fusion of Eniwetok and Luna Park, Freud and Elizabeth Taylor, reminded her of the slides of exposed spinal levels in Travis's office.

Using assembly kits constructed from photographs of (a) unidentified bodies of accident victims, (b) Cadillac exhaust assemblies, (c) the mouth-parts of Jacqueline Kennedy, volunteers were asked to devise the optimum auto-crash victim. He was alive when they got him out, but at one point in the operating theatre his heart and vital functions failed.
