Sample text

And not even when a m om ent later, being violently pushed open, the door of the room (reception? ) into which the trio had vanished, closing on a confused hubbub of voices exploding anew when the drunkard, doubled over, burst in again, one of his temples split like a ripe fruit now swabbed with mercurochrome, pursued by the policeman and the intern whose white coat floated behind him, already galloping (the drunkard) while clum ­ sily trying to stuff his unbuttoned shirt into his trousers, his voice (distinct now, high, outraged) saying That that’s not right, you’ve g o t.

O ut of kindness or weakness or timidity, he doubtless considered he had kept his promise to M aman when I was served, by one of his employees, a big cup of hot chocolate accompanied by cookies for which, as soon as I had wiped my lips with the napkin, I would thank him without even pretending to have done my homework and immediately rush down the stairs.

But I could not enjoy the escapes and dreams which, despite the disappointm ent of the photographs posted at the entrance to the movie-house, were promised by the garish prosters (or the various pleasures proposed by the fairground attractions) except at a run, being obliged if I missed that four o’clock trolley to go to the house of my oldest cousin’s husband already discharged from the army and set up in some sort of business in town and appointed CLAUDE SIMON by M aman not only to protect me from such dangers but even to see to it that I did not waste my time so that if I had to wait for the next trolley I could immediately get started on my homework or begin studying the next day’s lessons.
