Brideshead Revisited

Bild: Back Bay Books

“Here at the age of thirty-nine I began to be old. I felt stiff and weary in the evenings and reluctant to go out of camp; I developed proprietary claims to certain chairs and newspapers; I regularly drank three glasses of gin before dinner, never more or less, and went to bed immediatley after the nine o’clock news. I was always awake and fretful an hour before reveille.”
