Surely this was one of the oddest human entanglements he had come upon in a life among odd people. He had spoken with vigorous certainty for his dear mother’s benefit, but in the secrecy of his heart he wondered: could it conceivably be that Parsifal Dingle, a man in the sere and yellow leaf, was being lured by the dream of budding youth and blossoming beauty, things which he had missed in his own early days in a small unlovely village of the Middle West? Parsifal didn’t say much about those days, but Lanny had gathered that they had been barren.
So Beauty owed a lot to these older women friends—not so much older, Sophie would insist with a wry face. Lanny couldn’t recall the time when her laughter and sharply cynical wit hadn’t been a part of his world. Years had passed before he realized that she wasn’t the most refined of persons, but even so, he found her good company; and useful, too, for all the world came to her parties, and Nazis and Fascists and Spanish Falangists were not particular whose food they ate and whose wine they drank.
You British tell the Americans that you believe in democracy; you don’t, of course, but even if you did, what has that to do with Poland, a dictatorship of landlords and colonels? They weren’t pacifists, but they wanted to fight the right war, and when they knew they were fighting the wrong one, they begrudged every drop of British blood, every dead Tommy or officer, every home that was bombed, every factory and shipyard and oiltank and whatnot. They grieved for the Germans almost as much as for themselves; they were quite sure that if the Nazis had been treated with tolerance and consideration they would have developed the same conservatism as British statesmen.
