“Jack looked around the room. Apart from the Freudian chairs there were a few tables pushed up against the walls and in one corner a fat television stood silently on four spindly legs. There was something menacing about its blank screen, as though it was the one doing the watching, the one being entertained. It was never switched on when he came to visit. They probably only allowed it in the evening, something to calm the patients before bed. A non-chemical sedative to numb the brain.”
