Quick Curtain - Alan Melville

The Friday clash of funeral and inquest was a much more serious affair. The Brandon Baker Gallery Club went practically delirious over it, and went so far as to present a petition to the Craven street coroner demanding that the inquest on their late idol be postponed until a quarter to one, in order to give them a sporting chance of doing both shows.


So far this book is a bit meh for me, but I really enjoy these wicked passages here and there.
