Reader's note

A 1945 first edition of The Penguin New Writing 25. The first chapter titles 'Potatoes have hips of their own' begins: When something that has happened to a man goes on happening again and again in his mind, and is remembered and relieved for more than a year, even for two or three years after it has happened, even for the space of a war, there is only one way to write of it. You must say that it is happening now, that it is still in the present. For that is how it feels. The real present is not nearly so solid. Ad things come along you can stuff them into your pocket and forget them - months at sea in the Med, with sharp excitements and long boredoms, can be stuffed deep into your pocket, and two years in the Indian Ocean can go the same way; but something small that happened as long ago as 1940 in an air-raid shelter can be too big for you pocket, and you must carry it about with you continually in your hands.
