A very oddly-paced story. Written in the voice of "Stephens", the last of his breed of formal English butlers. Wrapped in his stoic, dutiful nature, his life's north-star is to have dignity befitting his position. What becomes apparent in this quietly heartbreaking story is that Stephens' true struggle is his incapacity for interpersonal relationships. His journey of discovery follows the measured gait of the perfect manservant; an expression of purposeful, deliberate steps. Brilliantly written.
