Still a very good book even though it is not up to par with [b:A Month in the Country|60707|A Month in the Country|J.L. Carr|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388176690s/60707.jpg|2825054]. Looking forward to reading more from this quite sophisticated, but simple, wordsmith. ( )

Epigraph
What is this world, what asketh man to have?
Now with his love, now in his colde grave
Allone, with-outen any companye.
Chaucer, THE KNIGHT'S TALE
Dedication
First words
The engine, pulling its three coaches, steams over the plain.
Quotations
Miss Prosser took the pen and tried to dip into the pot. The nib's point struck like a beak on a stone. She prodded again; once more it struck the edge of the pot.
"It's a fountain pen, Miss Prosser," the Chief Assistant stammered, pushing the book towards her. "The ink's in it already. You don't have to dip."
Her hand was trembling even more violently now and her "E" was a cryptic wavering line. At "P" the nib stuck like a dart in the paper and a blot gathered around it. She could not make an "r".
