    Summary

    Francis did not think a bad-tempered back deserved much sympathy. There were others who had lost more, suffered worse. Those who lived, as he had, could not rightly grouse about so much as the weather. But when James said, “Let me,” thumbing at the divot in Francis’ spine, Francis could only murmur, “Go on.” James had a way of breaking open his deepest certainties.

    ———

    Even at the worst of it. Even at the eleventh hour, when the weakest of them (James included) were driven round the wheel of breath by brute instinct alone, dead men with beating blood, Francis emanated the kind of muddy half-light that precedes the rising sun. His indefatigable will made manifest in the flesh.

    “Don’t be cruel, James,” he is saying now. “I am fat, decrepit. My better days, if ever I had them, are long behind me.”

    “Ever the curmudgeon. You’ve no idea how ... splendid you are. I, for one, think these are your finest days.”
