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.
