The Ends of Names

Mosquito by Gayl Jones ends with a signature that displays the names of the narrator protagonist: Sojourner Nadine Jane Nzingha Johnson.

The first chapter of The General in His Labyrinth by Gabreil Garcia Marquez translated by Edith Grossman ends with a paragraph that likewise rifts on names:

It was the end. General Simon Jose Antonio de la Santisima Trinidad Bolivar y Palacios was leaving forever.

I find it intriguing that the display of a full set of names is congruent with a sort of signing off.

And so for day 427
