Notebook

“Oh, God, man, get wise to yourself. And make up your mind about what bloody race you belong to. One minute it’s all about being a farmer’s boy in Northamptonshire and the next you’re on about the old days in Calcutta and what the British have done to Mother India and the snake-charmers and the bloody temple-bells. Ah, wake up for God’s sake. You’re English right enough but you’re forgetting how to speak the bloody language, what with traipsing around with Punjabis and Sikhs and God knows what. You talk Hindustani in your sleep.”

Anthony Burgess, “The Malayan Trilogy”.
