Example text

An old man came out, peering down the street in both directions and not looking at Charles. He was wearing a leopard-skin leotard with the top of a red track-suit hanging over it; he was bald, but from the traces of white stubble still clinging to his pate it seemed to Charles that he must have shaved his head quite recently. 'Isn't that what they say these days? ' 'Mr Joynson? ' The old man put one hand upon his hip. 'She's gone to think, she's gone to seed, she's gone to hell. ' He paused. ' He pointed towards 'Beware of the Bitch'.

A brown suit looks so calculating on a man, don't you think? One always suspects that he must have knitted it himself. ' Vivien, smiling persistently despite the fact that neither man was now paying any attention to her, passed through the gallery towards her small office at the back. She always enjoyed this walk: the gallery was so cool, so pale, so translucent (the paintings seemed to glow on the light grey walls) that it was as if her own feelings were slowly being bleached out of her until she reached her desk as the efficient secretary of Mr Cumberland and Mr Maitland.

' But he gazed thoughtfully at his son as soon as he had said this, feeling once more the stirrings of some distant pain within his head. Vivien came into the room and Philip put up his arm to greet her, blushing as he did so. ' she asked her husband. ' Edward shouted gleefully, and squeezed the bags with both arms. Charles took them away from him. 'These are the Chatterton papers,' he said, solemnly. ' Vivien, perplexed, looked across at Philip for confirmation of this news but he was staring thoughtfully at Edward's shoes.
