(Reading a letter) — A. Love and Kierkegaard? B. (snatching it) Love and Kind Regards.

‘It’s one of those churches in the City like My Aunty by the Wardrobe.’

A. They’re very nice. They have a Brancusi in the bathroom. | B. Do you mean a Jacuzzi? | A. No. They have one of those as well.

‘… where we dedicated a glass of wine to Artemis and generally conjured up the spirit of things long ago. They also do a nice curry and chips.’ I think said by John Fortune.
