    Summary

    "Totty--" Dakin starts.

    "Mrs Lintott," Irwin corrects automatically.

    "Mrs Lintott--" Dakin says, imbuing the name with as much faux reverence as he can manage, "told us about crossroad moments once. Do you believe in crossroad moments? Sir?"

    Summary

    “Then you know: the truth matters, as a baseline. We’re not writing fiction. The facts are there, most of the time, for you to discover. What you want to do with them, the story you want to tell, which threads to pick out of the tapestry—that’s what makes it history, rather than just the past.”

    Summary

    If it had been fiction, Dakin would have died. (The Turn of the Screw.) If it had been fiction, perhaps Irwin himself would have copped it. (Death in Venice.) Neither happened, of course. Irwin had survived, as argumentative and desire-tormented as ever, which proved that literature offered only the vaguest of guides to human affairs.

    Summary

    "I've got the rest of the summer left before I need to start having good ideas," he says, and takes another drink. "Think of it as a favour. You're helping me get all the recklessness of my youth over and done with before I go."

    Waiting for summer to end and life to begin, Dakin passes the time.
