The short novel about a man in limbo.

The original story was published in a literary magazine but for the book release, the text was slightly altered, for the narrative path to becoming a loop.
There is no defined beginning nor an end. Out of the cover-box, one can start the reading from any page and continue in circles as long as one wishes. Accordingly, pages are numbered, but only as following the cyclical formula where each page number is the sum of natural numbers from two previous pages: 10, 10, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 12, 7, 10 …
To add a twist, there is additional text, questioning the whole story, written to the inside of the cover box. The only way to fully read it is to dismantle the box.
