Reading Experience:

'For relief I have had a life of Orage ? by someone who evidently had a great admiration for him, but only knew him personally during the last phase ? the ?New English Weekly? time. But it was competent and pleased me well, because it left out all the chit-chat about women etc, which was always superfluous when Orage was in question. He seemed to me a man, one of the few, (your father was really another) who could quite well have dispensed with women altogether, except in the most obvious way, and of course women like me, like men of that type, as we also can stand alone (yes, really, I can ? but I am not the better for it ? it arouses in me my old sense of arrogant detachment which I am inclined to think is sinful).'
