'Anyone else might have thought it was real.' 'It was. I can break and come
together as often as I please, no matter how many times. No matter in what way
the pieces fall or how small the parts of me are split. I do not die.' 'You hold sway
over death?' 'I said I do not die.' And Lelio saw that the man was sick. The
emptiness around his eyes, a card of introduction he had seen many times before
. Why would such a man let himself grow sick? Was it that his power was only
partial, like his?

Caldecott built a studio for himself in the garden behind his new residence, so
that he could feel he was in the country even when he was not. Despite periodic
bouts of illness and the constant pressures of work—“People,” he wrote a friend, “
for whom I promised to make drawings are so unreasonable as to ask me to fulfil
my promises in a reasonable time”—he had never been happier. Meanwhile, his
picture books continued to grow in popularity and were becoming well known to ...

Assuming that our legs were not being pulled, and assuming he had got the facts
right, it wasn't funny at all. An old man of eighty loses his head, and jumps up to
catch at a chandelier—why? Because something is after him? Clarke did not
refer to the matter until we were leaving the club. Throughout lunch he was silent,
though he chuckled several times, and once he lifted another pewter tankard to
pledge my health. We were going down the steps, into a bright windy March day
which ...

Elijah answered that he had not troubled Israel, but that Ahab's evil reign, and
that of his father before him, had been the cause of the drought. Then Elijah
denounced the idolatry of Ahab, and followed this with a command to assemble
his people on Mount Carmel, and bring also all the priests and attendants of Baal
and Ashtoroth. Ahab did not dare to disobey, and a great, weary, listless crowd
assembled on the sunburned slopes of the mountain. The priests were there in
gorgeous ...

But Sunday was not the man who would carry himself thus easily without having,
somehow or somewhere, set open his iron trap. Either by anonymous poison or
sudden street accident, by hypnotism or by fire from hell, Sunday could certainly
strike him. If he defied the man he was probably dead, either struck stiff there in
his chair or long afterwards as by an innocent ailment. If he called in the police
promptly, arrested everyone, told all, and set against them the whole energy of ...

To David Graham, a contributor to the same issue, Francis, if not quite invisible, is
a bystander, reserved and wary, through whom “everyone and everything is seen
from a cautious distance” (81). To Mary Fell, this wariness is a form of
selfprotection designed to guard against intrusions into his personal life: “About
the true nature of his relationships with others and their effect on him we learn
very little.” Echoing Graham, she writes, “There is always . . . a certain distance” (
72).1 While ...

In one of those years (1971), O'Reilly's final season, Marist was undefeated in the
regular season until they lost in the big Metropolitan Bowl game. “In the four
years O'Reilly was at Marist,” Coach LeVine said, “the school went undefeated
twice in the regular season, and won two of its four Metropolitan Bowl games. “
We were forty-eight and two in regular-season play. Bill was on three of those
teams.” It was the Golden Age of Marist football. Not that O'Reilly would have
much to do with ...
