Sample text

Indictment, sir? Is it an indictment? ” “Mandalay” didn’t mean much to my pale thin charges with their Tommy gear and leering grins. It didn’t, in truth, mean much to me at the time. But now that I am back in London it runs around my head and will not let me go and makes me sick for my lost home, my lost wife. For the temple-bells are callin’, and it’s there that I would be – By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking lazy at the sea. I like to get to Chinatown early, before the sauntering tourist crowds with their cameras and their blank looks and their paranoid rucksacks strapped on back to front.

This is one of the rituals that I go through every week with my grandmother. She is always genuinely amazed that she has failed to win ten million pounds on the lottery. Every Sunday she comes round for lunch and expresses her total astonishment at failing to get six balls. Then I commiserate with her. “No luck, Nan? ” She smiles, although neither she nor I have to go to work tomorrow. She starts to rip up her lottery ticket.
