Introduction Thirty three years of age. A spendthrift and ne'er-do-well, variously employed in the church, the book trade, newspapers and tourism. I am at present, a student.

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?

If you could have one character from fiction as a flat-mate, who would it be? Holmes, naturally.
