Snippets from Black Teacher

I cannot begin to do this book justice, nor will these snippets. so I’d really highly recommend reading Beryl Gilroy’s wonderful memoir in full.

Of Lady Anne:

“I could never really grasp how sincere she was in anything she said. She was able to laugh or cry inside without moving a single muscle in her face.”

Snippets from The Old Boys

Really enjoyed William Trevor’s The Old Boys.

“As the future narrows one turns too much towards the past. One sees it out of proportion, as though it matters.”

“Mr Nox was not lonely … but he had faced loneliness as a boy and come to terms with it.
