Example text

There was a twist to the tale though. Remember the salacious letters that Legman had included in his article ‘Notes on Masochism’? Well, those were a different sort of bombshell and the collateral damage would hit close to home. The expression’ friendly fire hadn’t been coined then of course (though had you mentioned it people would have thought you were emoting about your fireplace) but it certainly would have been clearly understood by Jay. In those far‑off days when policemen were respected, hats were worn by all men and cigarettes were healthy for you, the Post Office had powers to open any envelopes that carried magazines in them to make sure they were not breaking any of the many strict censorship rules prevalent at the time.

They were already seasoned performers and masters of improvisation and their material carried the seeds of the aggressive and sharp social humour that would characterise the next decade, the 1960s. A production of Waiting for Godot, one of the first anywhere in the world outside New York, would be well received by an audience that was getting to expect unusual treats from Jay and his cohorts as they kept on challenging the conventions where ever they found them. So the Crystal Palace had just about everything you would want from a bar.

There was only one way to deal with the situation Jay found himself in ‑ with rebellion in his soul but love in his heart. He was going to get the attention of those dysfunctional parents by becoming the new house boy. So he helped to bring in the groceries, made a fire and mixed a pitcher of his excellent martinis. Then he allowed himself to be taken on a tour of the house saying the right thing on cue as if it was a play. Which it was. But it became more like a movie when Fran took him out on the terrace where he could see the majesty of the forest around them and the beauty of the lake at the edge of the rolling lawn that ended in a gracious waterfall.
