Bacchanal

There’s an excerpt from The Best of All Possible Worlds in the most recent edition of Bim: Arts for the 21st Century. It’s the chapter ‘Bacchanal’, shortened and adapted to stand alone … or as alone as can be with those chapters.  I would have posted about it earlier, except that when my copy arrived the first thing I did was hand it to my father.  He finished reading it and gave it back to me just a few minutes ago.

‘So, no comment on the story?’ I asked him.

‘It was all right,’ he replied.  ‘It was rather amusing,’ (with emphasis and a smile).

‘Well, good!’ I said.  ‘It was meant to be amusing.’

My father has an eagle eye for typos and will let you know when you’re making no sense.  From him ‘all right’ means exactly that.
