Many an inherited sorrow that has marred a life has been breathed into no human ear."

Echoes of remembrance of what men once did there, and visions of what they would do together."

Most of the buildings here had gone up in the 1960s, and Rebus hated them: blocks of sand-colored concrete replacing the square's original eighteenth-century town houses.

In this context, a glass of wine becomes a revolutionary statement."
