Philip Pullman (2017) The Book of Dust.

La Belle Sauvage is the first in Philip Pulman’s trilogy, The Book of Dust.  I got to chapter four in this book, ‘Upsalla’, p56 and gave up.

Louis MacNeice, ‘Snow’.

World is crazier and more than we think,

Incorrigably plural…

I don’t know if the italics are Pullman’s or MacNeice’s, but I guess that about sums it up.
