Penny Thank the Lord he’s dead. Oh dear. That’s not what I should be thinking. Certainly not at his funeral, poor man. It’s not as if I disliked him. I didn’t. Not Lionel Leacock, the man. Although he did sometimes smell of dog and always wore an appalling tweed jacket. No, Lionel Leacock, the man, was perfectly harmless. But Lionel Leacock, the novelist … Good heavens above. I can’t begin to describe just how much I loathed him.
