This Book is related to The Persistence of Memory painted by Salvador Dali
Chapter 1 makes reference to this painting with the following lines: "A Dali clock hung on the wall between the bookcases, its distorted face sagging to the bare concrete floor. Its hands were holograms that altered to match the convolutions of the face as they rotated, but it never told the correct time."
