Postscripts from my review of ’The Death of the Heart’ by Elizabeth Bowen here:https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2021/12/28/the-death-of-the-heart-by-elizabeth-bowen/
Did St Q reveal to Portia what he did reveal simply because he was a novelist?
Portia actually sent the St Q-A-T threesome a shadowy puzzle from Brutt.
Is it a coincidence that both MajorBrutt and Matchett end with a totemic TT?
Also compare my view of the taxi driver in The Demon Lover (this part’s Devil) here: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2021/10/05/the-collected-stories-of-elizabeth-bowen/#comment-23142 with my view of Matchett’s taxi driver.
