The Hour of the Star Chapter 8 Summary

  • The narrator asks, "Dear God, only now am I remembering that people die. Does that include me?" (8.462).
  • Wait … didn't he already say he has died? That he was murdered by Macabéa?
  • And we end with the following: "Don't forget, in the meantime, that this is the season for strawberries. Yes" (8.463).
  • Whoa.
