** spoiler alert **
I picked this one up last night(29/06/2009) and it will be quite a while before I feel inclined to read further than the intro then up to page 2 as the opening story was about his vivid memory of having been in a bath, rocking it so hard that it fell over. This occurred BEFORE HE WAS ONE YEAR OLD. lol
Page 70 The Sapling
"Ordinarily, children are supposed to spend their childhood like saplings sheltered in a greenhouse. Even if on occasion some wind or rain of the real world slips in through the cracks, a child is not supposed to be weatherbeaten in earnest by sleet and snow"
Loadsa film bitties in here - a must, methinks, for the buffs out there.
