Reading this short story (110 pages but in a very small page format), one can see the wry smile on Bennett's owlish face. Celebrities gather for Clive's funeral; he has died young, away in Peru. Why are so many of the mourners so anxious? What makes them leave so relieved and happy? ( )

Überwacht von einem unbestechlichen Gesandten der übergeordneten Kirchenbehörde, zelebriert Pater Jolliffe einen Gedenkgottesdienst für den Bettgefährten der beautiful people von London, einen auch ihm selbst wohlbekannten Mann. Unerwartete Enthüllungen der versammelten Hinterbliebenen sorgen dafür, dass die traurige Zeremonie einen rasanten Wandel durchläuft.
