Rune, originally from Norway, worked for the United Nations for thirty years and has since retired to live with his family in Spain. His interests are reading, drawing and painting, and writing. He has illustrated and self-published some small children’s books for his grandson.
“The Decision Button” will remind readers of Oscar Wilde’s famous observation: “When good Americans die, they go to Paris.” And readers will wonder: What is Maurice Guepardot’s problem? He is normal, happy, accomplished, healthy and has a rewarding occupation. And he lives in Paris. What’s not to like? And yet he is obsessed with the meaning and value of life. What’s it all about? He becomes obsessed with the question.
One might say that Maurice could have paid more attention in school. Jean-Paul Sartre could have told him that life sometimes plays cruel jokes. Sartre’s contemporary, Albert Camus, could have said: yes, it does, but make the best of it. Maurice is not one to settle for unanswered questions; he’s literally a hands-on empiricist. We await his report on his findings.
