5 tree

Vecchio amico ormai
Con me sempre in questi dieci anni
Siamo cresciuti insieme

Old friend
Always with me these last 10  years
We've grown together

Word 5 Page 31 
The Crimson Petal and The White
Michael Faber

A beautifully constructed, post modernish  Dickens meets John Fowles ish novel  which still manages to be wholly original and totally enthralling. Sufferers of Post Book Depression be warned, there is no resolution here - our narrator leaves us bewitched, perplexed, frustrated and confounded.
