From the Publisher

Excerpt: ...couldn''t last. Terry said it could, if one had chocolates in one''s pocket and didn''t hurry too much. 6 Basil walked beside Evie. Evie''s beauty was whipped to brilliancy by the damp wind. Evie was life. She might not have the thousand vivid awarenesses to life, the thousand responses to its multitudinous calls, that the others had, the keen-witted young persons who had been bred up to live by their heads; but, in some more fundamental way, she was life itself: life which, like love and hate, is primitive, uncivilised, intellectually unprogressive, but basic and inevitable. Basil had once resented the type. In old days he would have called it names, such as Woman, and Violette. Now he liked Woman, found her satisfactory to some deep need in him; the eternal masculine, roused from slumber by war, cried to its counterpart, ignoring the adulterations that filled the gulf between. Possibly he even liked Violette, which produced Woman. Ingram walked by Alix. The yellow leaves drifted suddenly on to the wet road. Alix''s hands were as cold as fishes; her lame leg was tired. She talked and laughed. Ingram was talking about dogs
