EXTRACT: Late at night the house was very quiet. Sometimes, when I couldn't sleep, I'd lie awake and listen . . . I'd listen to how quiet the house was. I left school because I was no good at anything. I worked in a garage, just helping out. I became an apprentice. My father died. At the funeral my mother wore black gloves. I fixed the roof. My sister gave the cat a saucer of milk each morning. I gave my mother my wages. I was happy sometimes. I grew up.
