Review: 2019.385 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The legal angle is really tangential to the real story, which is Andrew figuring out what is happening with his private memories.

Con: I can see how he wouldn’t remember what happened when he was in private mode, but why doesn’t he remember entering private mode? And if San Francisco has been building up for decades, I find it impossible to believe he wouldn’t remember that, if only from seeing and hearing daily comments about it.
