Alex asked:

...the distant plane humming like a bee... Huh?

Martin Lilford Well, this book taught me a lot about allegory when I read it twenty years ago. The humming of bumble bees, the overflight of small planes, the trajectory of a misdirected arrow; All should draw the attention to the intersection of Pearl's life with Beck's feckless, thoughtless love.
