    Summary

    On a blustery Wednesday in March in his third year at Oxford, the lesbians found Scripps. Later, telling the story, he is tempted to say that he found them, because finding them was akin to finding God for the first time. This wasn’t blasphemy because—and this part Scripps never tells anyone—it was the lesbians who finished what God set in motion.

    Summary

    It wasn’t until a week later that Posner cornered Scripps in the philosophy section in Blackwell’s and jabbed him in the chest with A Treatise of Human Nature, and in hindsight Scripps could admire his restraint, because the first words out of his mouth were, “Why does Archie Bernard think you and Dakin are sleeping together?”

    Summary

    “Dakin thinks you’ll get bored of me,” Posner says, out of the blue, and Scripps says, automatic and habitual, “He doesn’t.”

    Summary

    Lockwood's funeral makes Dakin look at his life a little differently. 'There were destructive relationships and loves in this world far greater than the lamentable ballad of Irwin and Dakin.'
