Sample Excerpt:


Meison hoped Jezebel would leave soon; he wanted to go to bed. He locked the door and put his grey flannel pyjama with black stripes on when she did. That grey colour really became him it went with his eyes. Then unconscious of the embarrassment she had caused, and tucking him in, he fell asleep in an instant. He slept on his back with his mouth open drawing the air deep into his lungs. As dawn broke, some bird began to call loudly at the balcony railing.

He stripped naked and looked at himself in the Venetian mirror. His posture was erect as that of Greek athletes. The length of his torso was roughly equal to the length of his legs whereas standard measures of such body were distal phalanxes of his little fingers. As he stared at his reflection in the mirror, his sight was playing tricks on him.

He gave a satisfied smile and went out naked to the balcony. There was sameness about much of the iron fences except that the wall of stone opposite marked the boundary of Freemasons Hall. Some laughter had resounded through the street, cars drove away smoothly, and monotonously one after the other filling the morning air with their greyish-blue pollutions laden with lead heavily.
