    A beautiful, unsettling work of art. A summary of a tortured and torturing life.

    I had to read it several times but it sunk in nicely. I may have to read it again.

the servants.
I know the cupboard of Spode

in diapers every one of them.
La la la, Oh music swims back to me
and I can feel the tune they played
the night they left me
