On a May evening, into the U on its stem pours the autumn cabernet and from that U your day unwinds. His blinding U-turn is the politician’s survival strategy, that for you is just mindless unbelievably mindless. Her bewildering terminology today was non-U, but then no-one remembers what non-U means. That guy who did a U-turn in front of oncoming traffic almost caused an upset. You have decided the novel’s main character is not the I but the You, despite everything I says. The conversation is less circular than back and forth. Flame has hollowed a U in the candle.
