After 22 years in solitary, the door had opened a little, and a chink of light shone through. Like the prisoners in Un Chant D'Amour, we shared a cigarette. I found out that the first student flight had been arranged to coincide with the end of the summer term, and I got myself a seat on it. Armed with a ninety-nine-days-forninety-nine dollars Greyhound ticket, I arrived in New York, knowing no one, but with the address of the priests that my theologian friend Roger had worked with in my pocket.

My life was ordered. The golden boy at King's who entranced me in the lobby was forgotten : out of sight, out of mind. He looked great on crutches tho' when he broke his leg in some accident, but I looked at him quite innocently, with admiration.
