Excerpt from The Art of Disappearing
This satisfactory conclusion he dwelt upon lovingly, um conscious that the Monsignor was now observing him in turn.
A fine boy, the priest thought, with man written all over him. Honest face, virtuous expression, daring too, loving-hearted, lovable, clever, I'm sure, and his life has been too easy to develop any marked character. Too young to have been in the War, but you may be sure he wanted to go, and his mother had to exercise her author ity to keep him at home. He has been enjoying me for an hour. I'm as pleasant as a puzzle to him he preferred to read me rather than Dickens, and I gather from his expression that he has solved me. By this time I am rated in his mind as an impostor. Oh, the children of the Mayflower, how hard for them to see anything in life except through the portholes of that ship.
