    Summary

    "If one should like to enter into a debate of near poetical and philosophical nature – this is a sanctuary of a certain kind. "

    Guy Burgess reflects on the poetry of a public loo, and fails to pay attention to his surroundings, leading him to his current predicament; restrained by a police officer, against the wall.

    Summary

    Jean-Paul Sartre had been a man who was difficult on the eye, Guy recalls. So difficult that one might have supposed he’d sprung from an Institute of Advanced Education in Birmingham or Hull, not the École Normale. However, he was correct about people — about the general characteristics of other people — and Guy has lived accordingly for the last several years.
