    Mahler sometimes has that effect on listeners. In Edmund Crispin's murder mystery The Glimpses of the Moon, the hero is sitting in a lawn chair, reading a book and listening to the radio. He dozes off, then comes to with a start and is aware the radio is playing music which "judging by its length and vacuity" he assumes is by Mahler.
