'the loneliness of the long distance runner'

a great novella. a great film. a great face.

Brown, House Master: Just describe the action to me in your own words, put me in the picture.
Colin Smith: Got over the wall of this baker's yard, broke into his office.
Brown, House Master: Hmm, I think you can do a bit better than this, Smith, um, surely your nerves were on edge weren't they, you felt afraid?
Colin Smith: If I felt afraid I wouldn't have broken in, would I?
